Re: Possible Bug with Brims and Multiple Processes

Not sure it is a bug, but the fix is to move them farther apart. That worked ... thank you Thank You !! In thinking of how I might approach this problem (switching order of parts, creating a custom brim in the model, hacking the G code ...), I never thought of moving the parts further apart ...

[FIXED] Brims and Multiple Processes Behavior

My goal is to print two models with identical settings except for the brim / skirt setting. BFlute_079_BPBD_BF_S3DBug_1000c20.jpg The left model is designed to print with only a skirt. It has a solid base and sticks nicely to the bed. Furthermore a brim causes heartburn in post-production - it's a f...

Re: Recovering Lost Processes

Regardless of S3D ability to manage profiles, I've run into issues where profiles do get corrupted or wiped out. This has happened on a version update to S3D and another case of a corrupted profile infecting other profiles. In both cases, CS advised me to re-initialize S3D and re-import my profiles....

Path Spacing

Is there a description of how S3D determines the spacing between paths / neighboring extrusions ? There is the Advanced => Overlap profile setting, but that applies only for the junction between perimeters and infill. Been reading a page on this from the Slic3r Manual (http://manual.slic3r.org/advan...

Re: External Infill Angle Offsets

Re: External Infill Angle Offsets

Thanks so much ! For my own sanity, I have collected all the "documentation" I could locate, including the Tip of the Day posts from Jan-Feb 2015 that you cited. Putting them together into a single document which serves, for me at least, as some sort of manual. I'll share it on this forum shortly as...
