Re: Paid upgrade For 2020 upcoming Version 5.0

Well, a quarter of 2020 is now officially past, and there hasn't been one scrap of info from S3D about version 5.0...

I really don't want to have to change slicers, but they aren't exactly giving people any other choice.

Re: Inset Text on Top Layer Full of Voids

Well, after several days of trying all sorts of things, I finally came up with a combination that worked. From the original file, the only settings i had to change were: Under the Extruder settings: RetractionDistance: from 0.6 to 0.7 ExtraRestartDistance: from -0.2 to +0.07 Under Infill: OutlineOve...

Re: Paid upgrade For 2020 upcoming Version 5.0

Don't hold your breath... We've been begging for ANY real information for over a year since Version 5 was first mentioned. The last official word was over 3 months ago, and again, provided no concrete info on features, schedule or pricing.

Re: STL Files for Temperature Bracketing

Zemlin: Very slick (as usual)! Do you use an particular infill and/or wall thickness? I've been trying to come up with calibration/tuning parts for different slicer settings, and these will get added to my collection. For example, while printing single wall calibration cubes to set my extrusion mult...

Multiple Processes at Different Heights?

I have a model that needs 3 processes; 1 for the bottom section, 1 for the middle, and one for the top. The differences aren't huge, but I can improve the print quality quite a bit this way. My question relates to how S3D handles the details. For example: 1) Starting & ending scripts: I assume it on...

Re: Inset Text on Top Layer Full of Voids

I've gone through the old prototype settings that are working MUCH better than my recent efforts, and I put the differences into a spreadsheet: PLA+ Screwdriver Profiles.pdf The old settings were a single profile for the enter model, and there are several places where there are differences that shou...

Re: Inset Text on Top Layer Full of Voids

Well, I tried 100% cooling on the top section, with the temperature at 215, and half speed. No noticeable improvement. I found an old factory file from when I was developing the prototype for this, and tried running that. It's a single profile, and although it's not perfect, it does a LOT better on ...

Re: Inset Text on Top Layer Full of Voids

I was thinking along the same lines several days ago, and tried a three layer setup with the top section running at half speed. It didn't help, but that was several changes ago, so I'll try it again.

Thanks!

Re: Inset Text on Top Layer Full of Voids

Well, raising the ERD helped a little, and going to a single perimeter on the top also helped, but it's still leaving out major chunks all over the place: Single Perim Voids.jpg I'm running out of ideas... The rest of the print look pretty normal, and the voids are very repeatable, so I don't think ...
