Re: S3D stopped loading on Windows 11

In the same folder as the saved default factory file ( see the linked thread for the folder name ) there will probably be loads of gcode files from recent prints. Zap all of them and the software should load faster.

Re: change computer

Sign into your Account and deactivate the software from your old computer....then you'll be able to activate to your new machine.

Re: Sequential Printing appears to default to layer-by-layer...

This happens when you have the parts too close together on the bed. There needs to be some distance between parts otherwise the sequential printing will treat the close parts as one.

Looking at the photo of your machine, you have room to move two of the parts away from the third...

Re: S3D stopped loading on Windows 11

I think the real solution to your problem is answered by this thread: viewtopic.php?p=49538&hilit=will+not+start#p49538

Nothing to do with Windows 11. Honest!

Re: Anybody running S3D on Windows 11?

S3D and Windows 11 running smoothly here.

I did intsall a few tweaks to restore some Windows 10 functionality I didn't want to lose. No rocket science involved....


btw...don't tell anyone, but Windows 11 is Windows Vista with four sets of cosmetic changes applied. ;)

Re: Raft not placed under all of the model

You're on the right lines for getting your print sorted. But you need to move the model down a tiny bit...rather than up! The problem is that the bottom of the model is not flat...and the slicer only sees the model touching the build plate at the low spots. Moving the model down will put the low spo...

Re: Surfaces not printing smooth

For starters, you'll never get a "perfect" finish on the underside of parts over support material. This is why 3D printing is such a black art for some people. Having said that, lets see if you can improve over what you have so far. Rather than throwing values at you saying "Try that&...

Re: Perimeters Not Bonding.

Not knowing what its set at, I can't suggest what to increase it to.....but try increasing the outline overlap.

There again, looking at the gaps in the top surface, I'm wondering if your extrusion multiplier might need increasing......again, from and to, is anybody's guess!

Re: "Choose Start Point Closest to Specific Location" HOW?

The xy coordinates are the coordinates of the bed of YOUR machine....and not anything to do wit the model. This majes giving an "easy" answer impossible....so you'll need to work the answer out yourself. If you go to "preview" mode for a print, the XYZ gizmo ( the red/green/blue ...
