Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

simplify is only on my machine until i can cobble together a decent prusa slicer profile for my sapphire pro then its gone Isn't that a bit of an over-reaction? V5 not coming out does not make V4 suddenly unusable. I still think that S3D is the easiest slicer to use out there. I have tried every ot...

Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

sorry but my hope is gone. Prusaslicer is the way to go now! I think they may have done it. The alpha version of the next release of PrusaSlicer has ironing, but more importantly it has "paint on" support placement (or support denial) locations. So if you want to only support one area, you just pai...

Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

sorry but my hope is gone. Prusaslicer is the way to go now! After I read this comment I downloaded Prusaslicer's latest version. Wow. LIke S3D and unlike CURA, it starts up fast. It has advanced settings, allows setting various profile types and even directly (and simply) connects to Octoprint and...

Re: Motor Fan

I am printing a small motor fan see attached. In this case, there is a tapper on the shaft that the fan mounts to. I would like to have the the surface of the Inner diameter of the tapper in the fan be clean. You can see in the photo attached it is not. I have been working on the retraction, but I ...

Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

I contacted them last week about this. They said that they are not ready to announce a new release, nor to announce what will be in it. I told them that the natives are restless. They do not appear to be impressed... Being that reticent, they must have broken something or lost a key developer who le...

Re: Best eSun PLA+ settings?

I have been using eSun PLA+ filament for a while and I like it because it's stronger than other filaments BUT it's very hard to remove rafts and supports from 3D-printed stuff. For me, the extruder temperature is set to 220 degrees C, the heated bed temperature is set to 0 degrees C, and fan speed ...

Re: "Jam" Issues

What material are you printing? Jams are typically caused by two main problems: Heat creep up the pipe with a weak heatsink fan. Excessive retracts and/or retracting too far. When printing PLA I added a second 30mm fan to my Cyclops head, one didn't cut it. Retracting too far will eventually allow m...

Re: Version 5 Announcement

@Omikron, You make a good point. There has been no substantial update in well over a year. If they had come out with V5 a while ago, there could have been tons more use behind it and many substantial updates. Some fool at S3D apparently still believes in the "Waterfall Model" of software development...

Re: PETG Issue

If you don't stick without a raft. You will get nowhere until you do. The very first step to successful printing is the first layer. The raft is a bandaid, your first layer problem has to be fixed. Take the time to level your bed. Do it when both the bed is hot (the geometry changes with heat) and w...
