Re: Is Simplify3D worth the cost?

I would suggest if this is your first slicer to go with Prusa slicer and learn that as it will continue to evolve unlike S3D

Re: Gaps in Perimeters (Again)

BTW, I would think the main issue was the negative restart distance .. the nozzle and drive on the m2 works very well when retracting and restarting. Anything but zero in this field will cause under or over extrusion after the retraction.. same goes for coasting.. not needed with this hot end/drive ...

Re: Gaps in Perimeters (Again)

Yes, managing one off changes can be difficult and they can bite you when you don't expect it. I tend to save factory files, I have no default process or profile. My factory files are named for the part and include the nozzle size, layer height and type of filament. I will just load a factory file f...

Re: Gaps in Perimeters (Again)

Despite all sorts of changes, the only minor "quality" issue I noticed is some "ghosting" of the internal voids that wasn't present with my settings: I'll report back if I identify exactly what parameter(s) made the difference. I suspect it will be only one or two, and with luck, I can have no gaps...

Re: Gaps in Perimeters (Again)

The attached factory file was used to print the part in the attached image. Please load and print without changing anything and see if you gaps are gone. I would consider this part perfectly acceptable, this is FFF and it is far from perfect. The more we try and make it so the more issues we create....

Re: Gaps in Perimeters (Again)

This makes prefect sense and why I did not include any of the unnecessary retraction setting you have when I posted the first factory file .. No lift no restart no wipe no force no avoid etc Just finished my 4th print of your factory and set all there retraction as I normally have it and there are n...

Re: Gaps in Perimeters (Again)

Re: Gaps in Perimeters (Again)

3 things you should do if you have not. Measure your filament diameter, you will find it is not round. No filament made by Esun is EVER EVER EVER 1.75 round.. it is 1.67 x 1.71 or 1.70 x 1.72 etc.. you must drop your filament diameter OTHER TAB to an average of what it is.. I typically will use 1.68...

Re: first layer of solid infill sometimes as Bridging

My parts are all mechanical parts so they need to be strong, weight is not a problem. I extrusion width for everything is .8 and I normally do .5m height for most things. There are a few items I have printed at .3 but I don't think ever .2 with a big nozzle.. If I am using a big nozzle it is a big p...
