Tool Change Movement

I would like to see an option added which will move the extruder (or dual extruders) away from a printed part whenever this is a tool change. By default, it seems that S3D will perform a tool change wherever printing last stopped. This provides an opportunity for extruders to drool down onto the par...

Re: A notes section

+1 vote I too would vote for an option to have a place to enter notes somewhere within the file. Yes, we can open a .gcode file after it's been prepared and manually add notes, but iw ould be nice to add a note somewhere within Simplify3D and have the note appear in the header of the gcode somewhere...

Support Perimeter Option

I would like to see a feature added which allows a user to add an outline/perimeter to support material. Sometimes when printing S3D instructs the machine to lay down Dense Support or Primary Build Material and the movement path starts/stops on top of empty space (nothing underneath it). I know that...

Dynamic Retraction Vertical Lift

Requesting a feature addition/change which will automatically change the Retraction Vertical Lift setting based on the Primary Layer Height. Dynamic Retraction Vertical Lift ________% (Percent of Primary Layer Height) (expected values of 0% - 1000%) Having this be dynamic will mean there is one less...

Smart Retraction Distance

Requesting a feature which will change the amount of retraction distance based on the linear distance between two points. The longer the distance between two points, the more retraction is necessary to keep material from drooling out of the nozzle. Here is what I'm thinking/suggesting: Add/change th...

Speed settings based on height

When printing really tall parts (especially thin-walled parts or with flexible materials), sometimes we need to slow down the print speed (and acceleration/jerk) as the print gets taller. I know that we can use the Variable Settings Wizzard to setup mutlipe processs and make the changes to print spe...

Re: Set Default Printing Speed by Material

To comment on this further, the liquifer on most extruders is the limiting factor on how fast you can print with a typical machine. The speed at which material flows through the extruder is a function of mostly the material and somewhat the nozzle diameter (smaller nozzles increase the pressure requ...

Re: Laying down support...

When manually adding supports, it's tedious to make sure that support fills an entire area when added. I would like to see an option which 'fills' any empty space between towers. (let users set a minimum distnance and then have S3D fill any voids between manual support towers which are less than tha...

Re: Dense Support Speed configuration

I would like to vote for the additional speed feature. This is especially important when printing with two different sized extruders. We've found that many 'primary' build materials can be printed much faster than support materials like PVA; however, we can't slow down the dense support material by ...
