Re: Collision on sequential printing

In a nutshell....no. The sequential printing only has a settable clearance in the vertical direction (Z axis) to prevent a collision between the underside of the print head assembly and existing printed layers. And I cannot see there being any realistic possibility of there being anything more as pr...

Re: [Solved] Limited Layer Height and Unwanted Models Appearing

No sweat. I was a novice not all that long ago....and I made simple mistakes. That's how you learn....

In fact, I think you learn more from mistakes than you do from reading manuals!!

Re: thin walls not always filled with single extrusions

Take the factory file from above and increase infill overlap from 20% up to 25% and..... Voila! S3D is exactly doing that! Closing the top layers with single extrusion. Just for correctness......do that and you get a very shallow zig-zag infill created by the infill generator...NOT a straight singl...

Re: Limited Layer Height and Unwanted Models Appearing

The 38 layer issue is caused by the Stop Printing at Height tickbox being set...Advanced tab top LH corner. As you've found out, "hiding" a model purely hides it from the setup view. If you want to restrict the models that are printed by any one process, you need to exlude the models you don't want ...

Re: thin walls not always filled with single extrusions

It looks to me that the "Thin wall" behaviour is not being triggered because the shape is not being identified as being "thin" as the maximum number of shells (in your case, two) can be placed....and what you're getting is the normal infill behaviour. Upping the number of shells to three invokes the...

Re: 4.0 Problem,model disappears when prep to print

Probably the same solution! But with the absence of details...who knows?

Re: Unabe to affect stringing

You're printing far too hot for a start!

Try dropping the temp down to somewhere between 180 and 200 degrees C....and return other settings back to default values.

Re: Solid layer same direction as support

I think we need the Factory file for this slicing. Three single layer simulations is far little information to go on!

Re: Solid layer same direction as support

It took me five minutes to work out that your three screen shots only show a single layer of the model!!!!! Very confusing...and not helpful. Tahking your screen shots top to bottom.... The direction of the support is governed by the value or values in the Support Infill Angle field in settings. The...
