Re: .stp or .STEP file for Simplify3D

I will say. GrabCAD Print does allow import of Step files which allows to processing of things to be done completely different. since the geometry is not mesh, it allows the person to select geometry such as cylinders "holes" and allow those selected faces to to have specific setting like ...

Re: .stp or .STEP file for Simplify3D

Step files do not contain Triangulated Faces like like STL. S3D would then need a converter to translate the Step into and tessellated mesh body. This would require user input to decide on the "detail level". I have had import/export issues with complex Step files. Where the geometry will ...

Re: Layer to nowhere

the PS behaves much like GradCAD print. Which is used for industrial 3D printers which I use at work. I say GrabCAD is the "worlds slowest slicer" but it is analyzing every layer and how each line is connection to the layer above and below. It extends the top and bottom layers to connect t...

Re: Slowdown First few layers

@ Monty3DP you can group processes. Once grouped if a setting between two processes are them same they will stay linked when you make a change. I did not know this for the longest time. just wish it made text a different color for setting which are different in process which will not change in in an...

Re: Change support vertical separation layers to mm

this should not be hard to implement. I am already doing this with simplify3D. it is a little work to setup but not limited to layer thickness as separation. see post here for setup. https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?p=63074&hilit=layer#p63074 have to setup two processes as "model&...

Re: Infill does not "match" ??

your infill size is also affected by the Extrusion Width under extruder
make sure both are the same. right now one is 0.6 and 0.4

Re: Extra Restart Distance doesn't change as a group variable

see this was my complaint back then. to have it change the text to red for instance to indicates a setting which was no longer linked. once all setting where the same it would show as black. still a little confusing as things might match up as you are adjusting them and get link when you don't want ...
