Re: Slicing errors

Also in S3D go to the mesh menu and try the separate connected surfaces and see if that helps.
That won't help.....it will cure it! Read the sorry tale here.... viewtopic.php?f=23&t=13243

Re: Simplify 4.1.1, supports problem

A factory file would be 10000000% more useful! Screenshots of partial settings can be hard to read.....and are likely to be useless to someone wanting to help.

Re: Seperation from raft

The first thing I'd suggest is to kill the heated bed!...set the temp to 0. PLA doesn't need any sustained heat, in fact it really needs a cooling fan running flat out after the first layer! I print a lot onto a raft.....mainly as its more convenient to do so, but also as I print model buildings tha...

Re: Perimeter around surface layers on top of infill

This has been an issue for users for OVER FOUR YEARS.

Here's one early thread on the subject: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2309&p=9366&hilit=o ... fill#p9366

There have been many suffering from this deficiency. Another old issue that really needs attention!

Re: Support Issue. Possible Bug?

No probs. Its not your fault....its a lack of interest by the S3D developers to ensure the slicer can be used efficiently by the users.

Re: Stringing occuring on hollow cylindrical prints?

This may just simply be printing at too fast a speed. And if its on the first layer, it may be the printing is a little too high for the printed filament to adhere properly.

Dealing with multiple meshes in one shape file

The utility added in v3...I think it was....Separate Connected Surfaces has been mentioned 205....sorry, 206....times in the forum...and almost 84 of those times has been by me in response to reports of S3D not slicing correctly and leaving small gaps in the sliced model. All of these have been rela...

Re: Support Issue. Possible Bug?

Simple and rational explanation!

The stl has two meshes in it....and S3D....as you know.....finds difficulties dealing with multiple meshes in single stls.

Use the Separate Connected Surfaces option......and the support generates as you would expect it to.

Re: FFF Profiles Disappearing

I very mush am not convinced there is any issue with S3D here.....and I have a fear that you will continue to lose your profiles and data unless you change the way you work.....but I also fear you will not do so and continue to blame the software for you not saving your data correctly. One bit of go...
