Re: extruding through open space

Repaired by 3DBuilder....load into S3D as you would an .stl file.

Re: Error message from my slicer settings

I've never had this particular error message....but I understood what required doing after reading it! First, do not use terms that are not being used in the settings that you are suggesting needs to be adjusted. Had the error message used the terms that were actually in the software settings it wou...

Re: No model after clicking Prepare to Print

The part sliced okay for me as well. stl file checks out...no errors.

I see no reason for the part not to slice...unless the S3D installation is corrupt.

Re: Print Quality very poor

My advice.... 1) Do NOT even think about, never mind try to copy, the settings from one slicer into another. Slicing software are different to each other....and a specific setting in one package will probably not do the same in another product. Take the First Layer Width. You probably used it in Cur...

Re: Multiple layer height

This is exactly what the multiple process capability will allow....and as an added bonus, allow other settings to be different as well! I can see a problem there just being ONE setting that can be changed at a specific layer. Other users will want other settings changeable as well......and the solut...

Re: Ailerons out of a tapered wall - slicing weirdness

Having looked at the sequence of printing in the simulation for this part, I do see an issue that needs to be addressed by S3D's developers... It looks as if the addition of the single extrusion processing has resulted in unexpected consequences where any thin wall sections are processed totally sep...

Re: Switching processes adds entire bridge layer

Without the factory file, we're all totally guessing...including me, but here goes. I think the model is not completely flat on the bottom...and consequently there may be a very very small gap below most of the part and the bed. The first layer ....the only layer in the first profile, when generated...

Re: Unwanted Supports

Just remembered how I resolved a similar support issue with auto-generated supports getting in the way.....a simple and slick solution... By default, set the support pillar resolution to 99. Then, for the part you want to generate manual supports, before you add the supports, set the manual support ...

Re: support issue

There are no attached screen prints....which make things a little difficult for anyone to help.

What would be useful would be a factory file of what you are wanting to print.. File dropdown===> Save factory file

New boy on the block?

Any chance of an introduction to S3D-Rick, the new boy on the block?? It would actually be nice to know a little more about the S3D team in general. Put some faces to the names and the like...if you see what I mean. I've been posting on here for well over five years.....and know absolutely nothing a...
