Upgraded to 4.0, crashes during slicing

Hello, I have been running Version 3.x for a few years with no hiccups. I just downloaded and installed 4.0, S3D crashes right after I hit "prepare to print!" on a few of my factory files, but not all. I am not sure if I was supposed to uninstall 3.X first? I can open the same parts in 3.X and they ...

Re: Printing overhang with support

Ahh I got you now.

So you think I should run a cooler chamber temp or a cooler nozzle temp? I dont want the part strength to be compromised.

Re: Printing overhang with support

I am running a 65C heated chamber to print ABS. I also thought it would be clear from the print params that it was ABS. Look at it this way, if its 230C PLA in a volcano E3D, I doubt youd get a good looking print :o No one on gods earth would print PLA in a 65C heated chamber either unless you want ...

Re: Setpoints and processes

I am not sure that answers my question. I just want to know if a setpoint (layer 1) in a process starts at the beginning of that process (first layer of the process) or the beginning of the entire model (1st global layer). No where in S3D does it specify where the first layer of a setpoint uses its ...

Printing overhang with support

Hello. I am printing this model shown. It is being printed in a heated enclosure at 65C. The overhangs are looking like this, even with support. They just want to curl upward and that intereferes with the next layer. I thought the heated chamber should prevent this from happening as it slows the coo...

Setpoints and processes

Hello, If I have two process, what does the setpoint in the uppermost process represent? It says LAYER number. Is that the global layer number or the layer number for the beginning of the new process? If I add a setpoint to layer 80 of a process that begins at 60mm, will that layer 80 start from 60m...

ghost temperatures showing up

Hello, I have two processes. One process is dedicated to my first layer, I use 0.4mm layer height in this process with a 75% first layer height. The process ends at 0.3mm so first layer is controlled best for adhesion. I set my hotend temperature in this process to 235 to help with adhesion. And the...

Re: How do I remove these?

the perimeter needs to start and stop somewhere. The only way you can totally eliminate retraction points on the outside is to print using the single-layer vase/spiral mode. You can use the retraction settings to tweak the transitions at these points to minimize the blip that will happen at these p...

How do I remove these?

Hello, How would I be able to remove the points around the circle part of this part, that do retractions, and dont actually print anything? I tried increasing my minimum infill length but that hasnt worked for me. In fact minimum infill length never really changes anything. I really need to get rid ...

Re: Trying to print thin wall tube with single perimeter

yes you can do this. you need to remember that it is putting only 1 perimeter down. a perimeter is an extrusion on the vertical surface of a model. your cylinder has 2 surfaces, not one. what you need to do is model it as a solid. like a round bar. it should not be hollow in the middle. then set to...
