Re: Printing with zero outlines gives an undersized part

Yep, that'll do me close enough for the moment, good idea.

Printing with zero outlines gives an undersized part

Probably not an intended use for most people but a little buggy all the same - if you try to print a model with zero outlines, the part actually shrinks by one line width - it's like the slicer plans the infill with a single virtual outer wall there. Easily seen if you have a brim on - there's a sin...

Re: Version 5 Announcement

Honestly I'm kinda at the point where I'm not expecting a release any more and I'm a little worried about future support too to be honest, it might be time for me to start looking for alternative slicers again as even though S3D is still my go to others have some nicer tricks these days for some awk...

Re: how to manage support separation when printing at large layer heights?

It'd certainly be a lot better if you could put support and infill layers on divisions of normal layer height as well as multiples, if you're using half mm layer heights sometimes you only want the seperation to be a half or quarter layer, same for structural infill with alternating patterns, it'd b...

Re: Single Extrusion voids/bug

Great, unfortunately tolerances won't allow more overlap for this atm - the parts have to come out with less than a tenth of a mm size-wise to keep them on spec through temperature changes, so I'll have do a little jiggling with the sizes first. I do have some more parts that show the same single in...

Re: Single Extrusion voids/bug

I can send one in, but I can't post it here publically as the model is commerical.

Re: Single Extrusion voids/bug

Eh? It's a single extrusion that's causing the gap, you can see it's the correct width in half the points and not in others. Works fine on other layers: S3dBug.jpg I'm not sure if it's just a rendering bug but it does seem to coincide with the models that have some issues with single extrusion fills.

Single Extrusion voids/bug

Been trying to work out why my machine was having some issues with extruding single lines - I thought it was the extruder so stripped the machined and cleaned everything, etc, still had the issue with single extrusions being underextruded and not meeting the perimeters - couldn't work it out out, bu...

Re: Paid upgrade For 2019 upcoming Version 5.0

I have no issues with paying towards continuing development so long as we get a year or two of free updates between - provided that work continues on quashing bugs and issues with 4.1, etc, as they're going to end up supporting multiple versions.

Re: 4.1 and 4.1.1 Constantly Crashing. 4.0.1 Never Did.

This file crashes the program once every 10-20 tries - it also has massive problems with random retractions and overlapping perimeters in the first section - what on earth is going on there?! I've been having a lot of problems printing TPU since switching to 4.1.1 and I'm wondering if this is part o...
