Re: Extra Lines Added (BUG)

My experience with STL files. They are not exact. There are floating point issues when models are exported to an STL. here is the hole where the problem is. Notice one edge is ever so slightly longer? RoundingError.png S3D is seeing this little piece of geometry sticking up and doing exactly what it...

Re: Top layer issues

ha sand paper!
yes sometime a little elbow grease is the best way.
if it is ABS I would go as far as acetone dip.

Re: Top layer issues

so the top is not flat? you don't want to see the layers? or the straight line on the the surface? 3 things you can try you will never rid of those lines straight from the printer. To minimize the look set the External Fill Pattern to Concentric. you can make layer height thinner .2mm? also if you h...

Re: Inside walls smooth & rough but outside perfect.

Printed fine here. Did not have support on so the bad spot is where there should have been support. I printed it at 2 layers top and bottom. 2 shells, Outside-In 60% infill using Rectilinear. what is the purpose of the lip the red arrows are pointing to? if there is no purpose. I attached a redesign...

Re: Inside walls smooth & rough but outside perfect.

I will print it on my system. Just waiting on another print for the next 3 hours. I will print it at 2 shells 2 top/bottom and infill at 60%. Yours just looks like an over extrusion issue . I'm not going to bother with support. Just will stop it at the point where support it needed. And will move th...

Re: Inside walls smooth & rough but outside perfect.

would need to see the model too. But you are print Inside-Out. as I suspected. I always print Outside-In. If things are over extruded because of bad filament diameter then the blobby looking will be inside the shell with the infill. Look in your layer tab. That is the only thing I can see by looking...

Re: Inside walls smooth & rough but outside perfect.

Are you printing nearly solid?
It kind of looks like over extrusion to me.
Is the filament diameter measuring much bigger than it should?
If you print inside to outside and there it over extrusion this is the end result from my experience.

Re: Editing multiple processes simultaneously

I know old post. Wish it was a little easier. For instance... So "simply "if you select multiple process via ctrl and selecting it. then hitting edit. even if the processes have different values it would make them all the same. Maybe the field shows blank or red if there are different values between...

Re: custom supports with multiple processes

This may be helpful or not I would manually generate the supports. And Put the "model" in one process and "Support" in another. The "model process" has supports disabled. The "support process" has supports enabled which were generated and manually altered. Infill set to 0% and zero for Top Solid, Bo...

Re: auto layer height to get perfect top layer height each time

This would be a pretty difficult thing to implement. even the +$100,000 printers don't do this.
I would love the feature. But lets say a face was purposely put at 1 degree. How would that be implemented?
Or you have a part with multiple levels. There would mixed layer heights on a single layer.
