Re: Flashforge Creator3

I haven't tried solubles with the IDEX system at all yet so I can't speak to how well that would work out. In my experience, mostly UM3, so long as you lower the resting temperature of the support nozzle, you can get great results.

Re: Flashforge Creator3

I am considering adding this printer as another production printer. What are your opinions on it so far? Thanks. It includes some annoying safety features that would cause me to not recommend it for a production environment printer. Most frustrating of them would be the fact that back to back print...

Re: Flashforge Creator3

...This hasn't been tested on large models. Just place a small model in the centre of the build plate and slice from their. Once you are happy with how it works, play around with different sizes and positions to see if there are any limits. Simplify3D doesn't provide support for duplication and mir...

Re: Slower speed for Dense Support - script?

I wrote this a while back. https://github.com/quotetherevan/slowDownFeatures

You'll need to update it a bit, as the comments in Simplify3D were updated to a new format in version 4.1.0

Re: Speed adjustment for small perimeters

Hi Would be useful to be able to adjust speed on small perimeters eg holes. As they end up messy at full speed. Many thanks Jeremy I wrote a python script long ago that can do this for you after you've created your G-code in Simplify3D. https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=654&start=60...

Re: Craftbot 3 starts grinding and tries to leave build area

Sounds like a firmware issue if after a firmware initiated pause the print begins again with the wrong offset. Have you reached out to the manufacturer for tips about offsets and firmware initiated pauses?

Re: 4.1 generates Gcode that starts my cooling fan before it should be on

So, if I understand correctly, if I am printing with ABS and have the fan layer control speed on the cooling tab on the left set to Layer 1 Speed 0 to indicate NO fan at all for any layer in the entire print, the override is still going to turn on the fan when it thinks it is needed even though I s...

Re: printer settings will not update

You may need to update the printer's firmware in order for the machine to know it's able to travel that far. I'm not sure where the documentation for this process is stored anymore as PrintrBot no longer is in business. Hopefully another user here has done such an upgrade and may be able to help.

Re: Post processing scripts - incorrect behavior

Can you tell me what the purpose would be for your processes to each have different post processing scripts? I consider myself a power user. I wouldn't expect the software to know how to correctly handle three or more sets of terminal commands that it's being asked to run. I'm actually impressed it ...

Re: Extruder acting like its on vacation after the perimeter.

If slic3r is working fine but you feel compelled to use Simplify3D, why not compare the infill settings for both softwares? Perhaps the infill extrusion amount is less in S3D or the print speed is too high in S3D?
