Re: 2 Overlapping Processes 2nd Process Not Displayed

Has anyone from Simplify taken notice of this bug? I'm stuck using an old version of the software but I would like to switch back to the current version if it's been resolved.

Thank you for the update!

Re: 2 Overlapping Processes 2nd Process Not Displayed

Ok I've confirmed that it is a bug in the software.

Process 1 can be seen here

Process 2

And the combined process where both should be generated.

Re: 2 Overlapping Processes 2nd Process Not Displayed

It's because the software will not allow you to set the support percentage to 0%. I am creating a process so I can customize the dense support material print speed and other settings. Because I have to set the normal support percentage to 1% the software thinks it is overlapping even though it's not...

2 Overlapping Processes 2nd Process Not Displayed

When using 2 overlapping processes the 2nd process appears not to be rendered in the preview. This is either caused by the process not being generated in g-code or the process being ignored entirely. This has happened regardless of my setup. To recreate I simply create a process for the main model. ...

Re: Support Infill Percentage to 0%

I'm very sad to see this is still missing from V4.1 but progress continues. Thanks for the latest release!

I first mentioned this option in April 2016. Thanks for all the work you do on what is easily the best slicer.

Re: Feature Request: Better support generation

I have a different take on this: In my experience the tree supports are not reliable and break on prints. They also dramatically increase the number of retractions needed to print all those islands and slow down prints. They are ideally suited for SLA which is where they are mostly deployed. (See fo...

Re: Settings for Skirt Speed only

It's not a pleasant workaround but you can manually modify those lines to reduce the speed in the generated G-code. To do so simply: Open the g-code file in a decent text editor like Notepad++ use the search function to find all text "; skirt" There will only be a handful of lines which set the feed...

Support Infill Percentage to 0%

In the latest version we still can't set Support Infill Percentage to 0%. The minimum is 1% which limits the flexibility of support generation considerably. With the addition of this adjustment an entire profile can be dedicated to the generation of support material. Another profile can be used to c...

Re: Filament diameter should be per extruder property

That's a good workaround but not ideal. 3mm filament with a multiplier of .5833333 would give 1.75mm equivalent. Even with both of my extruders using 1.75mm filaments the diameter is such an important calibration step that it would be nice to call it out explicitly. Additionally, it should be stored...
