Re: Color change at height

This would not work with the STL file, but would create a GCode file with a pause. If you want to pause with Simplify 3D then you need to use a post process script on the scripts tab like this. {REPLACE "; layer 50\n" "; layer 50\nM0\n"} This would pause the printer at the 50th layer. I have a profi...

Re: Pause at height?

The best way is to use a post process script on the scripts tab like this. {REPLACE "; layer 50\n" "; layer 50\nM0\n"} This would pause the printer at the 50th layer. I have a profile that I saved, I call "print with pause" that I use when I want to pause my printer at a certain layer, in my case th...

Re: Smooth top surface

I'm no expert, but it looks to me like you are under extruding. You shouldn't have gaps in your top surface. It looks like a plaid shirt. Try changing your extrusion multiplier (its on the Extruder Tab) to 105 and run a test and see if that helps. Also check how many top and bottom layers are you us...

Re: Pre purchase questions....

You also might note that you get two licenses with your purchase. So instead of trying to run it through your network to a printer connected to another computer, you can install S3D on the other computer too and be well within your license agreement.

Re: Robo 3D Purge at Start

I don't have your printer but I never have that issue. You don't by chance have the print bed too high do you? Maybe your actually scrapping part of the previous line off the print bed and sticking it to your extruder. I know on my printer there is a fine line between squishing the first layer and s...

THANK YOU !!!!
LOL! :D

We've ALL been there! :roll:

I will say it is weird how it rotates on the print area and not the object. But once you understand that, it's not that big of a deal, just pan!

Re: Object is too low offscreen to view

With the object well in view press the RIGHT mouse button and hold it down. Now move your mouse around. That's pan.

Re: Object is too low offscreen to view

I think the problem arises because the rotate function seems to pivot on the center of the view or perhaps the center of the build area (I'm at work so I cant test for sure), which is well above the platform. When something you want to see is small it is very easy to rotate it out of view. However a...
