Re: Paid upgrade For 2019 upcoming Version 5.0

i heard they will move away from stl files ,which is a good thing . i hope i would be able to upload a solidworks file directly (other cad also ok) this will definitely differentiate s3d from regular slicers and will be a good move. I have a hard time believing any of that. Adding support for direc...

Re: Should have posted as Beta.

I agree, but that's most likely never going to happen. Simplify3D is all about secrecy, and posting beta versions is a violation of that.

Re: V4.1 Issues with walls

Doug, thanks for voicing this, I'm hoping this can get some traction with S3D. However, given the history, I'm not very hopeful, at least not for a few months. Instead of going back to the 4.0.1 behavior, perhaps S3D could have made a function so that it dynamically added more perimeters in problem ...

Re: V 4.1 Retraction at layer change and outline crossing

Ok, then it's probably a bug. At this point, it might be better to just stick to version 4.0.1 for a few months until a bugfix version is released.

Re: 4.1 No space between dense supports and layer above

I'm not seeing this. Could you post a factory file?

Re: V4.1 prints non-existing geometry

Attached is a simplified model that exhibits the same bug. It is clearly linked to "Internal Thin Wall Type", because if that is set to something other than "Allow single extrusion fill", the bug does not show.

Re: V4.1 prints non-existing geometry

3Try replacing your shape file with the attached file....and see if it slices correctly. It does. I gather you've remeshed it in some other application (3D Builder?), which obviously recreates the geometry by redrawing the triangles and also changing the amount of triangles in the mesh. So getting ...

Re: V 4.1 Retraction at layer change and outline crossing

Are you sure this is due to retraction? Could it be something along the lines of the issue I reported here: https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=11649 If so, you will of course also see it in the preview, so if you don't, then it is a different issue. If only S3D had put some faith in th...

V4.1 prints non-existing geometry

The attached factory file slices fine in version 4.0.1, but in version 4.1 it adds a thin wall (from non-existing geometry) inside the model. Turning off thin walls, it disappears, and also if number of perimeters is less than 3.

Here's how it looks:

Re: Slow down top layer and other requests

Well, I can't say I disagree, but S3D is still a solid slicer. Just don't buy it with expectations of frequent bug fixes or updates.
