Re: Problem With Raft In V5

This is in V5 and you cannot set it to zero. We are able to in V4.
In V4 we also used to be able to set the top layer density.

Every time S3D puts out an update they seem to break more stuff that worked well than adding or fixing things.

Problem With Raft In V5

Why does it put down this layer for the raft? It is the raft "base" layer and it is absolutely useless. 2.jpg When it puts down the top layer it is very uneven and not at all smooth because of all of the gaps in the base layer. 3.jpg We used to be able to do just one layer for a raft in v4...

Re: First Layer Issue

If the part is literally just a constant rectangle with one cutout, I think it would be easy to share with our team. You can email it directly to us at the link below if you don't want to share it publicly. https://www.simplify3d.com/contact-us/ Without providing the actual files though, I doubt an...

Re: First Layer Issue

The model is as it looks. It is 5mm thick and the shape is what you see, it does not change as layers increase. Just a flat model at that end. No change in geometry. I tried a number of settings changes including layer height, number of top/bottom layers, number of walls, extrusion width, speeds etc...

Re: First Layer Issue

In my experience, things like that are typically caused by odd changes in the topology of the STL file, but it's hard to make any better guesses without being able to look at the exact setup for your print. Can you post the factory file for the print? It is a customer file so I can't share it. The ...

First Layer Issue

Why would S3D do this, area indicated by yellow arrows, on the first layer. It breaks the first layer into two sections which makes the surface of the print look bad. Remaining layers print ok or fill in to the perimeters without the break. Model has been checked and is error free. Surface is flat a...

Set Support Separation Layers Using Actual MM Height

We desperately need to be able to set the support gap by an actual measure, such as 0.24mm and independent of layer height, rather than just by the current layer height. If you run a layer height such as 0.16mm then supports will mostly "weld" to the model and be near impossible to remove....

Re: Anyone Using S3D On A QIDI X-Max3?

Hi wirlybird, I did a few more tests with S3D and the Qidi X-Max 3. The results are nice...so nice, that I decided (contrary to my statement before) to write a post-processor for the the dynamic acceleration control with Simplify3D. I think, in a few days it's ready to share. Do you have the Qidi X...

Re: Anyone Using S3D On A QIDI X-Max3?

I figured most of this. I really don't print all that fast. So that isn't too big an issue. I am having big issues with leveling with the printer. Runs auto leveling before the print and yet it starts the first layer on one side of the bed and will start good but by the time the first layer is at th...

Anyone Using S3D On A QIDI X-Max3?

Anyone tried S3D with the X-Max3? Going to try it but wondered if anyone ahs already been there!
