Re: PETG Support

Well, Cura was the answer. Problem solved. So, I for one will not be wasting my money on a Simplify update. My current version of Simplify 3D does not even begin to compare to the latest version of Cura. Online support and documentation is also much better. Good luck to all. I am out of here!!!!!!

Re: PETG Support

Cura does allow one to specify the z height for supports thus negating the need for increasing the temperature. So I am going to try that. If support settings are not going to be an improved feature in Ver 5 then I guess that I am out. Does Simplify monitor this community board???? Thanks, TN Yankee...

Re: PETG Support

That is what I said! The issue I believe comes from the (Separation from Part) "Upper vertical Separation Layers" under the Support Tab, my value is 1. I assume this to mean 1 layer is skipped to minimize adhesion thus allowing separation of supports later. This separation is enough regardless of th...

Re: PETG Support

Thank you for the advice. I set up a virtual extruder as you suggested. I then printed the support test 3mm from Thingiverse so as not to waste time and material. The print was perfect, smooth, with sharp corners. The supports, however, were a total no go. they just did not stick to the previously p...

PETG Support

I have finally dialed in most of the settings for PETG on my machine. Nice prints no stringing. However, I cannot get the support to stick to previously just printed surface. I have tried with and without using the part cooling fan. The supports start 8 hours into the print so this is getting expens...

overhang support

I am printing a case for a 10.1-inch display using PETG. This is obviously a large and long print. Everything goes fine for the first 11 hours or so. The print is almost perfect, smooth with good adhesion between layers and to the bed. Then tr the printing of supports begins. The material on the out...

Canned script for Tronxy X5S

]The g-code script generated by the Configuration Assistant is as follows: G28 ; home all axes G1 Z0.2 F3000 ; get ready to prime G92 E0 ; reset extrusion distance G1 X100 E10 F600 ; prime nozzle It does not return the extruder to the original 0 point and results in the failure of the first layer!
