Re: Anet A8-M

I'm really not an expert for such problems, but the issue may be cause by a lot of factors, i.e. the usb-cable is to long, problems with the com-ports, defect printers mainboard a.s.o. For the experts it is very helpful to know more informations, such as the printer has worked before and the issue i...

Re: Skirt won't print if global z offset is negative and larger than layer height

Don't worry! Version 4.01 is the same, if the Z-Offset is negative greater than the layer height, the brim or skirt is going under the zero-line of the print table (and is not printed). It is not a bug, it is a feature! It is absolutly unusual and it is dangerous to set the z-home to a negative valu...

Re: Anet A8-M

My 2nd printer is an A8 and runs very well with S3D. Absolutly no problems with it. What the difference to A 8 - M is, I don't know, but all dimensions are identicaly to the A 8, only it has added a 2nd extruder. If there is no own profil at the moment ( perhaps to new) , it is sufficient to add an ...

Re: Skirt won't print if global z offset is negative and larger than layer height

The problem isn't that I can't SEE the skirt because it is being displayed below the print bed, it is that the skirt ISN'T PRINTED AT ALL. I would understand if the skirt wasn't shown ... .... All parts of objects, situated below the digital print table are not printed, they are "brushed under the ...

Re: Skirt won't print if global z offset is negative and larger than layer height

You are right, it pulls the skirt down under the zero-level. Perhaps it is the last call to have attention to a very unusual situation. I'm printing any time with negative Z-Offset, -0,12 mm when the layer height is 0,20 (in sum positive) But it seems that the program doesn't understand why you want...

Re: 4.1 Vase Mode Defect

It is ViaCAD. I will try it but the programm is limited to 3000 facets. Its "big brother" is named SHARK and has more performance. H. The limitation of the CAD program concerns the changing from mesh to solids. The repair function was running through. The fixed files has now >8 MB therefore I attach...

Re: 4.1 Vase Mode Defect

Your model has some issues , i.e. 260 collapsed facettes.

I think, S3D is not resposible to this.

Re: Strange model offset after slicing

Your model is a cluster of parts and not ONE solid and it is not manifold.
This may be the reason, but however for me it is ok to slice and also to print.

Re: 4.1 and 4.1.1 Constantly Crashing. 4.0.1 Never Did.

Mostly I had the Windows (WinProf 7 / 64 ) message: "Simplify did not answer" or "Simplify has no reaction" (translated from german message text: Simplify reagiert nicht mehr; Simplify antwortet nicht!); no blue screen or other shut downs, other programs are running without influence of this. So as ...
