This is indeed disappointing, especially after such a long wait.

Re: Autodesk Inventor 2015 Dual Extrusion Alignment

Ah! It makes sense now, and I was able to recreate the issue you were having. If you scale the solids after importing them (or, in your case, with an import action), align selected models does not work as expected because, it appears, the origins are not scaled with the dimensions. This seems to be ...

Re: Autodesk Inventor 2015 Dual Extrusion Alignment

D'oh! Apologies to you both. I didn't notice it was someone else offering help. Rebekah_harper's method of hiding one solid to export the other is one way, and is the way I usually choose for this purpose. Another way is to select all the solids, then go to File > Print > Send to 3D Print Service. I...

Re: Autodesk Inventor 2015 Dual Extrusion Alignment

I also use 2017 now but I've successfully used the same method with previous versions. I do exactly what you do so I don't know why it would work for me and not you. I would like to help your resolve this, but I don't know what more I can do without trying your file. I have never had a problem with ...

Re: Autodesk Inventor 2015 Dual Extrusion Alignment

Your 'ultimate solution' is exactly the workflow I use. There is no need to compromise, this can be solved. You haven't described how you built the model or how you export it from Inventor. If you tried my previous suggestion and it still failed, it seems that it must be a problem with the .stl file...

Re: Autodesk Inventor 2015 Dual Extrusion Alignment

That's a great tip Doug, thank you. As long as the Inventor part is constructed with multiple bodies, your suggestion works just as well.

Re: Autodesk Inventor 2015 Dual Extrusion Alignment

With your individual bodies imported into S3D, ensure they are all selected (Ctrl-A) then from S3D's edit menu, choose 'Align Selected Model Origins'. Once aligned, you might also want to group them with Ctrl-G so you can manipulate their position and size as a single object. I do this all the time....

Re: Flashforge ABS white residue

Anyway, this is a BuildTak issue, not Simplify3D, they are off the hook this time. I don't think it's that simple. The rabbit in the image that I posted earlier was printed on a freshly installed (same day) platform sticker just like the one you linked. However, I completely agree that this isn't a...

Re: Flashforge dual "left only" profile

I use the Flashforge Creator Pro profile, and both extruders are set to 0.5 lift. There isn't any logical reason for them to be different so it does look like an anomaly in your profile. I would change the left lift to 0.5 and test it.

Re: Flashforge ABS white residue

If you lightly heat the white marks they disappear very quickly. The first image is untreated and is badly marked. In the second image, I have heated the feet and tail and in the third image I have fully treated the model. I use a small handheld butane torch: http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/micro-...
