Re: Will we ever get any updates, new features and bug fixes

So disappointed, I agree languages and printers don't qualify as updates - features and bug fixes do. Where did you get the impression that this upgrade will only contain new printers and language? To me the following quote means that a lot more than the above will be included. Why not just wait an...

Re: Please add brim for support

I agree that S3D needs to come up with a better solution. What I do meanwhile is setup 2 processes, the 1st covers just the first 2 layers and set it to generate a brim and for the support I also set extra inflation. If the support is away from the brim I place tiny objects (0.5mm high and 2mm diame...

Re: Problem: S3D makes Ultimaker 3 Extended extrude in the a

To test out your materials, print any object separatly with both to be sure, that the extruders are working fine. The materials and the extruders work fine as you can see from the same model that is currently being printed from the Cura slicing: Cura print.jpg One thing I like about how Cura does t...

Re: Problem: S3D makes Ultimaker 3 Extended extrude in the a

As mentioned above, I tried again, this time without the pillar and there in no knocking anymore but still printing is not successful. Now nothing gets extruded from extruder 2, the right one used for PVA support material. The print head does all the right moves but nothing is coming out from the ex...

Re: Problem: S3D makes Ultimaker 3 Extended extrude in the a

I made a two changes: 1. I am now using a single process to see if it indeed helps 2. I moved the prime pillar from the North-East to the South-East. The reason for the knocking was when trying to print the pillar the print head would hit the part that pushes the extruder 2 lever to move it up or do...

Problem: S3D makes Ultimaker 3 Extended extrude in the air!

I have printed successfully on the Ultimaker 3 Extended using Cura but this is the 1st time that I am trying to use S3D generated gcode since I really dislike Cura. I started with the S3D machine configuration and I then defined the two filaments and their temperatures and set the left extruder as t...

Re: [Solved?] Slicing never finished and getting stuck

You are working in inch > mm or only mm? Only mm. I will look for the information on how to cleanup the installation and try a reinstall when it happens again. Since it is a Linux system and the application was installed as a user and not root, the only places S3D can store files is in my home dire...

Re: Slicing never finished and getting stuck

... without any changing of your settings? Sometime this happens to me when a model ist not watertide. And it is recommended to close the program time to time. Two weeks ago I had a situation, I could change the First Layer Width how ever I had everytime the same result. This was only to solve by r...

[Solved?] Slicing never finished and getting stuck

Few times now I ran into an issue where S3D gets stuck at the end of preparing to print. It gets stuck displaying "Finished parsing G-Code file" and the blue bar never reaches the end. It seems to happen either having multiple copies of the objects in which case lower the number of duplicates helps ...
