Re: Seperate Connected Surfaces - Doesn't work

Separate Connected Surfaces DOES work. I've been using it ever since it was introduced into S3D...and I've recommended its use here on the forum probably close to a hundred times! Try loading the shape file into 3D Builder ( the free Win10 app). If it loads, it will have automatically sorted out the...

Re: Pieces of part missing after slicing

I've just stumbled on a magic fix for you......

Mesh dropdown menu.....click on Separate Connected Surfaces.

Re: Adjust printing speed for layers below n sec

My take on these settings.... If the layer is going to take less than 10 seconds to print, then reduce the printing speed down so the layer will take 10 seconds.....however, do not slow the speed down below 10 mm/sec, and if the layer now takes less than 10 seconds then so be it! So the answer to yo...

Re: Troubleshooting CR-10 S4 with Direct Drive - gaps in perimeter at end of layer

My suggestion would be to have a read of this page: https://www.simplify3d.com/support/print-quality-troubleshooting/blobs-and-zits/ I Know it talks about extra bits being extruded at the start/end of layers, but the opposite of "too much" is "not enough".....and its the same issue that causes gaps ...

Re: Pieces of part missing after slicing

Its got something to do with the wall thickness. Slicing at .02 extrusion width gives a little more...and you can get single wall thin extrusion to show......but the issue is definitely with the model. 3D Builder on Win10 doesn't help. btw a factory file has a suffix of .factory, and is created from...

Re: Automatic supports still generating even when manual supports are added

Where you have parts made up of two or more meshes, if you only add manual supports to one of the meshes, then the auto-generation routine will still create supports for the meshes where you have no manual supports defined. The way I get round this is to set the support pillar resolution in your pro...

Re: Support not automatically generated

Do you happen to have tilted your model by 45 degrees? And you have the angle not needing support set at 45 degrees?

If so, there's your answer!

Re: 4.1 Hangs During Install

Yes there is. Do what the guys in support advise you to do. Which is what Support for the paid-for software is all about! Because an installation doesn't complete, it doesn't necessarily mean there is a software issue that requires a coding change. There could be one of a thousand environmental situ...
