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: Version 5 Announcement

The biggest thing S3D still wins in is support placement. It is simple, easy, and intuitive (almost - remove all does not actually mean it removes all). Once the free software catches up in this crucial area, I can see S3D losing another large chunk of users. For me, S3D is now the backup software -...

Re: 150 dollar consumer sofwtware and no updates in over a year?

you do realize that $150 for software is like penny candy? If you are a business, sure. In the consumer market, $150 for something whose biggest competitors are free is NOT penny candy. Not sure why people think they should have forever support for $150. The company touts free upgrades for a year a...

Re: Paid upgrade For 2020 upcoming Version 5.0

Upgraded my Prusa to an i3 MK3S and started using PrusaSlicer-2.2.0. Yes, it nice having their separate filament settings, ability to show remaining time, and some other features/improvements, etc. But, even with bunch of tweaks, their supports just don't match S3D. Guess what I am saying is v5 is ...

Re: Paid upgrade For 2020 upcoming Version 5.0

I actually told them not to purchase this software and stick with Cura until your team starts giving us something, whether it be a progress update or an actual update. That hurt to say but I can't recommend to someone to spend $200+ dollars and hope it's worth it. I have been doing the same thing. ...

Re: 4.1 prints supports when told not to print them

It would still be better if they renamed "remove all supports" to what it actually does, which is "does not remove all supports but makes you think it did so you get upset when you print and there are still supports, since you expected remove all to actually mean remove all".

Re: UPS for 3D Printer?

The size would really depend on how long you expect power to be out and what temps you are print at. But for printing PLA with a heated bed on a Prusa I3 MK3: While idle, the I3 Mk3 used 8W of power. To preheat the bed, it used 250W and to preheat the nozzle it used 220W. Again, the consumption drop...
