Re: Why has Simplify3D been abandoned ?

I'd suggest that everyone here get a copy of the Print Quality pages, if/when S3D folds so you have a copy of the good advice on those pages.

Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

I'm also shifting towards using another slicer (SuperSlicer) exclusively.
I'll only consider using 5.0 is it's amazingly good and seriously cheap to upgrade to.

Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

As a long-time user of S3D, I am certainly looking forwards to version 5, but equally if the upgrade cost is too high then I'll be staying with 4.1.
I'd be happy to pay about, say, US$30 for the upgrade but anything more than that and I doubt I'll buy the upgrade.

Re: Is there a 'ruler' available?

Not exactly what you want, but whenever you modify the part by re-sizing, rotating, etc, the XYZ box shows how large that model is in each dimension.

Re: Blobs and Zits on outside of object

What filament are you using? It sounds like PETG, which does that a fair bit.

GCode Z-height isn't working

I'm running a Cocoon Create (I3 clone) with a Bigtreetech SKR V1.3 32 bit board, and a BLTouch. I'm trying to get the right starting offset for the first layer by entering the Z-offset height in the GCode tab. Nothing I've tried seems to make the slightest difference, it's still running the nozzle h...

Weird addition to STL

I'm looking at printing an attachment for one of my drones and the part loads just fine in S3D, but after the "prepare to print" thing is clicked, there's a fair amount of odd material added to the print.
It looks fine on my old reliable UP software FWIW.
Any ideas on what's happening here?

Re: Cocoon Create will not connect

Try going to Tools > Firmware Configuration, Communication tab, and disabling the "wait for startup command" option. It does connect now, (thanks!) but it still doesn't work properly. S3D keeps sending M105 commands and I can turn on the extruder or platform heaters, but there's no temperature feed...
