Re: Support Base Layers Setting not honored

You are missing something...…...the support base layers are specifically designed to be directly placed on the printer bed...and are to help with adhesion.. They are not designed to go on top of the part being extruded.

Re: web/hairs in one place on print

Try checking the "Avoid Crossing Outline for travel movements" on the Advanced tab and experiment with the detour factor.

Re: How to close outline perimeter

You're getting this because you're printing with a nozzle diameter of 0.5mm or greater and the width between the hole and the outside edge of the part is less than 0.53mm...and you are using an Extrusion Width of greater than 0.53mm There are three ways round this: 1) Change to a smaller nozzle. 2) ...

Re: Trouble printing a part that is partially recessed into another part.

I'm assuming when you say this is made up of four parts, you mean four separate parts in your CAD package that are placed interleaved...and then you export to an .stl file. If this is the case, simply use the Separate Connected Surfaces option on the Mesh dropdown to separate the four parts of the S...

This touches on the whole subject of machine and profile management that has been discussed in several different threads from several different angles. The whole way in which this is managed and used needs a complete re-design so that things are far, far easier for users to understand and use. No tw...

Re: thin walls not always filled with single extrusions

I can't really see a "problem" with your factory file sufficient for me to be concerned about your print being "ugly". You can solve the two layers where there's a very thin internal gap by increasing the infill overlap from 15% to something like 80%...but this is not going to affect the appearance ...

Not bad for fff printing!!

I've just printed what must be the most complex part I've ever even contemplated printing: IMG_3658_red.JPG This is one piece....half of the girderwork that forms one side of one of the spans of Brunel's Royal Albert Bridge. Printed in PLA on my (now ageing) Makerbot Rep2 with a 0.2mm nozzle. It too...

Re: Multiple printer support.

S3D DOES support multiple printers...and it is VERY EASY to do.

Use the Configuration Assistant to download the default set of printer profiles for your second printer. The profiles for your first printer WILL NOT be deleted.

Don't believe me? Sorry, there's nothing I can do about that!
