Re: how to prevent support on just one of the parts in a process

You've both obviously decided to ignore my advice! Very amiss of you both! Allow me to modify the last paragraph of the previous post: Now in the case of support, S3d already provides a very good way of managing support within a profile and for different bodies. It allows you to generate automatic s...

Re: how to prevent support on just one of the parts in a process

There's no "generally" about it! There are simply facts and logic! The support settings in the Support Generation window are used for support application actions kicked off from within the window. The support settings in the profile are enacted upon by the slicer when it goes through the pre-slice a...

Re: how to prevent support on just one of the parts in a process

One of the tricks I do for such parts where I want a mix of auto-generated and manually defined supports is to set the support pillar resolution to 99.9 in the process. Then, where I want auto supports, I use the Customise Support Structures window, and set the support pillar resolution to something...

Re: how to flatten the top of a model

I am making clay stamps. When I bring in my image and create a model the hills and valleys it creates are too severe. how do I make it so the top surface of the model is more flattened? What utility are you using to do the conversion?? Whatever you're using, it looks as if you need to tune the sett...

Re: Connecting Makerbot Replicator 2X to Machine CP

If you use the MakerBot Replicator 2 printer profiles from S3D, then the gcode is automatically converted using a utility to give an .x3g suffix file that the printer will read. I always copy the two files (.gcode & .x3g ) so that I can see the gcode and print profile used.AND have the file to throw...

Re: simplify3d does not add a brim, skirt or raft to model

I would flip the gear over so the side with the slim boss is uppermost.....otherwise the finish on the bottom will be not very good as the first layer of the main gear wheel will be printing over fresh air!

Re: Non-planar layers

This "sounds" like a good idea...…..but I'm of the opinion that introduction of such a feature may be more trouble than its worth at the present time. Why? Here's a good video on this subject....but sit up and take notice of the comments made at approx. 12:10. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmePlcU...

Re: Can't get this stl to print as is

Not a guess...….as TB says, advice how to cure the issue...…...use the Separate Connected Surfaces option on the Menu dropdown.
