Re: Seasons Greetings

I want to explain my stance on the "whiners" some of you are talking about. First of all, I have nothing against the developers of the product. I love the product. What I do see time after time after time is promises that are not delivered, empty marketing content and all other kinds of things I am...

Re: Can I run this software with a laptop that has Intel i3 processor?

I do all the time. Works great, and fast. CURA runs like a dog on my i3 with 16GB of RAM, S3D runs as fast as it does on my "bigger" machines.

When using multiple processes, temperature settings are ignored

Windows 10 Home S3D 4.1.2 RepRap using Marlin 1.1.8 firmware configured for two extruders, one nozzle. Cyclops dual-filament, single nozzle This combo works awesome, no need for any custom scripts. But If I have a model, where 2/3 of the way up I switch from extruder 1 to extruder 0, the extruder te...

Re: Temperatures are not changing with process.

January 2020, this bug is still here. I just ran across it using two processes to, one for each extruder, which switch extruders part way up the part. Only the very first temperature is set, I have to manually change it. I will be adding some script work to properly do this. Hopefully the 5.0 releas...

Re: Seasons Greetings

Maybe I am a little late with my sentiment, but I too agree with Doug. I probably would have given up on 3D printing if all that I initially had to work with were the free slicers. Lest anyone need reminding, they don't have manuals either (I still want a manual S3D!) With S3D as my start-up slicer ...

Re: How do I print two dual-color models at a time? SOLVED

That did help to refresh my memory about processes. When using the dual color tool however, they confuse the issue by grouping dual-color objects in the "models" window, and giving that group a name, and grouping processes in the Process window, and allowing you to assign those names. But, although ...

How do I print two dual-color models at a time?

I have fiddled for over an hour with this and failed. No matter what models I chose for a given process, when I try to use the dual-color tool, it selects all models. That doesn't work. I try to start with the dual-model tool and then select models, nope doesn't work either. Is it just not possible ...

Re: Proper documentation and more support for variables

For the love of god, will you PLEASE document scripting variables!!! For years you have relied upon power-users to document this program. It is time for you to do it. It is not possible to get a decent multi-color print without them. This could kick every other slicer's butt if you did this. P L E A...

Re: Single outline corkscrew is still broken.

Thanks Cap'n Snarky. That did the job. Next question I'll simply be snarky about the manual. Oh wait... I realize that "it is different than it used to be" is a poor complaint. But those two settings are a bit non-intuitive for a model that doesn't have a top layer and merging all outlines into a si...

Single outline corkscrew is still broken.

I have had S3D for a couple of years now, and back in the 3.xx times the single outline corkscrew actually did a corkscrew. For at least the last three revisions, it does not work. I have attached a factory file with a model from which I have made several single outline corkscrew early on, and does ...
