Re: Simplify not starting after Windows 10 update

Removing the registry keys works. you are probably running multi monitor and have nvidia card. this is opengl driver bug on nvidia :( every time you leave the s3d on the "non primary" monitor it will fail to start next time (till you remove those keys so it starts on the primary monitor) the soluti...

Re: Simplify not starting after Windows 10 update

edit registry, delete all "Geometry" key's under Simplify3D tree (curent user/software/simplify3d ) try to start, usually that solves the problem to prevent from problem happening again, change your envinronment variables, set: QT_OPENGL=angle that should prevent the nvidia opengl driver but from pr...

V5 must haves

we all know v5 will come and will cost to upgrade ... we all know the bad side ($$, lack of information etc etc) but we also know the good sides, so many free slicers out there and we still use s3d as it does the job better and more complete than most of them... so it's a good slicer no matter how b...

Re: Ability to measure STLs, hole sizes, and bottom surface

Free version of netfabb is awesome for measuring features on the mesh. Having that functionality inside S3D would be useful, not a priority really as so many mesh tools already have it, many other things lacking in s3d that are much more important and much more related to actual slicing.

Re: bad quality on S3D, good quality on Cura

What can be the reason that S3D is so much off? They run under different assumptions and calculate stuff differently. One is not better than the other, they are just different. Major difference is how they "expect" the overlap between lines to happen with 1.0 flow multiplier and extrusion width. (V...

Re: reduce resolution

I am certainly not saying STL is a good format. Even if one does one will change ones mind first time one need to do dual material print, or dual color print... Just saying MESH modeling is far from gone, and will never be gone. It's just convenient for many use cases. While you can embed a lot of o...

Re: From .4mm to .6mm

It is just a warning you are exiting "safe zone", safe to ignore it. Safe zone for .6mm nozzle is ~.7mm (0.6*1.2 or 0.6*1.25) width with up to 0.58m (0.6*0.8) layer but s3d adds another relation of layer height < width / 1.2 so with your manual 0.6 width it will allow you to set layer height up to 0...

Re: reduce resolution

It's ok to say that G-code is not an universal file, but in the real life we use it more or less in that way that is simply not true, if one is trying to look at g-code as "universal file" one lack basic understanding of the technology where g-code is used. neither in FFF nor in milling g-code is c...

Re: reduce resolution

Most of the stuff I don't agree with but never mind, S3D can't do it, so in those cases I have to go with other slicers that do know what resolution is :( @greybeard, I do most of my design myself and there I don't have a problem, but sometimes parts are not generated by myself and sometimes those p...

Re: PLA and Acetone? Doubt about it.

Depending on the additives PLA will get "crumbly", get "soft", get "rotten" from ACETONE and similar solvents. Smoothing PLA surface, I tried everything, from MEK to Dichloromethane and while most of those super poisonous solvents will allow you to chemically weld PLA (using Dichloromethane to glue ...
