Re: Default Feed Rate and Maximum Feed Rate

+1 for me

Also, we're taking about EXTRUSION RATE here, NOT feed rate, which is the term for speed of motion of any axis (including the extruder, in raw filament terms). Any setting in the Other tab, needs to be labelled correctly, so as to avoid confusion.

Re: Send GCode Directly to OctoPrint

[rant] Blows me away how someone can ask for a feature and a dozen or more people pop in with nonsense about how, "[you don't need it]". Folks ... if we didn't want it, we wouldn't freaking ask for it. In Slic3r for example, I click ONE BUTTON -- not even Prepare to Print then one button, then enter...

Re: Fan On for perimeter printing & Fan Off for infill print

_ Fan On for outer shell/perimeter printing and Fan Off for infill or support printing. This is for every layer except for the initial layers. _ When this feature is on, user can enter the fan speed in percentage. Seriously? No one else wants this? WOW. This feature would HUGELY improve thin walls ...

Re: Slicer behavior for thin walled sections

Hi all. New customer. Loving Simply3D's overall print quality. But yes, this thin wall thing is a MAJOR shortcoming, compared to every other slicer out there.. I wrote about it here . Slic3r is the only one that seems to handle thin walls well. It has a, "Detect thin walls" setting, switched on by d...

Re: Double over printing ruining prints

I personally have never used this mode, but maybe vase mode may help in printing a single perimeter object. alternatively you could change the number of perimeters to 1 instead of the default 2. Thanks. Done all that -- except vase mode, which would ruin the rest of the print. The problem is that a...

Re: Double over printing ruining prints

This is part of the larger general problem with thin walls that's been annoying just about everyone for a long time now. Please go add your voice to this thread so the S3D devs can ignore it too: https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=3471 Thank you. I will. Thank you for the kind suppor...

Double over printing ruining prints

Hi I've been using Slic3r for years. Recently tried Cura but was disappointed with the way it (doesn't) handle thin walls. More recently, I took the plunge and purchased Simplify3D. Of course, that was working well until the day after the trial period expired! LOL I often print Thingiverse thing # 2...
