Re: Supports needed in thin wall print

Thanks Greybeard! I'll give that a try. Doug, Simplify3D is the recommended slicer for 3dLabPrint airplanes which are all thin wall prints with the top and bottom open on almost all the parts. That's the main reason why I bought the software...otherwise I would have stuck with the free software and ...

Re: Supports needed in thin wall print

I should mention if I reduce the support resolution lower to 2.0mm or 1.0mm I can place manual supports...however they disappear when I click the prepare to print button and if I create the gcode the supports do not print.

Supports needed in thin wall print

Hi all, I'm working on a 3dLabPrint plane, specifically the P-51. I've modified the long nose into 2 pieces so that I can install the larger motor for combat but still have the scale looks of the smaller motor. The larger motor does not fit through the front hole so I used Mesh Mixer to slice off th...

Simplify3D will not shut down properly

Ever since the last update I have had issues with Simplify3d not shutting down after I hit the close key. I have to go into task manager and end it. I have done a complete uninstall, deleted left over files, and reinstalled and I am still having the issue. Any ideas?

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

Well I finally figured out the issues I was having. The first was my travel speed was too low so that was largely what was causing the stringing. The 2nd is I am getting moisture in the filament. While printing I don't see any steam from the nozzle but when I push filament through I definitely see t...

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

So I decided to take a break on the PETG before I get overly frustrated with it and switched to my testing of PLA+. Interesting that the PLA+ is printing just about perfect on the first try. No holes and only a little bit of stringing. Still getting more zits than I would like but I'll take it...I c...

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

No the holes are random. Still get them even with no retraction and no coast or wipe. At 200* it seemed the extruder struggles to feed the filament. It feels much slower when I manually push the filament through and is pretty difficult. Attached is at 220* with no retraction, coast, or wipe.
