Missing top layers in version 4.0

Just downloaded the new 4.0 and was greatly disappointed by first print done using it. This is a part I have printed before with 3.1.1 and not with these results. Seems it doesn't handle what I call internal top layers. It also made some strange moves in the first few layers. Looking at the picture ...

Re: Tip of the Day 18 - Advanced Tab, a technical analysis

Could you please update this question of the day to the current software version? There is a setting "Movement behavior" and a setting that is not explained in the latest software. What is the "Maximum allowed detour factor"? What units are expected and what effect does it have. Just what is the fac...

[ADDED] Raft footprint adjustments

I would like to see a feature that would allow tuning of the raft size. I am printing a part that has a very small footprint on the table but is rather large overall. The problem is that the raft appears to take an Ariel view from the Z axis and creates a footprint of the entire part. This is entire...

Re: Factory file vs process exporting?

You totally miss the point. S3D is one of the pay for slicers, one would assume it is designed for a production environment. In a production environment you need control over processes to be repeatable. People are careless, that is one of the reasons computers are so great, they don't forget. Imagin...

Re: Factory file vs process exporting?

I just wish that the "behind the scene" was saved to an external file and not the registry. It would greatly increase the versatility for sharing, but would open up possible abuse by others if the sharing was a group thing. It would also open up a shared file conflict thing and I know even Microsoft...

Re: Factory file vs process exporting?

Maybe I am just being dense but the way I understand this is "processes" are stored in the registry. If so then the second machine does not have access to them. Second machine being a laptop at one location and first machine being a desktop at the print location. There is little to no description to...

Re: Factory file vs process exporting?

So the simple way to sync two machines is to store a factory file from one and load it to the second machine? It's a shame there is not a more transparent/background way to do this but I can live with this way. Something like a external shared file with process settings but I guess that is not all i...

Re: Tip of the Day 19 - Additions Tab, a technical analysis

When using a raft one setting says how far from the part the raft extends and I am wondering how you determine this distance from the part? It appears that you use a shadow image from a Z axis point of view. This results in way more raft then is needed for a part that has a small contact footprint b...

Factory file vs process exporting?

I found a tutorial on process saving but I can find no information on how to use and the purpose of factory files. Since the license allows two machines is there a way to share setups between them. I typically work on a part at one location and print at another. It would be nice to be able to keep t...

auto bed leveler

Can you modify the bed leveler to raise a settable amount between each test to allow access to leveling screws. On my TAZ5 there is not enough access room to get to the leveling screws on all corners. If you provided a "Z" height for each corner it would greatly increase the use ability of your leve...
