Re: custom supports with multiple processes

if there were a check box i n the support section that said "custom supports", then behind the scenes it could change the setting to 99 and that would be the end of it. maybe. but yeah it behaves like two separate support systems the way it is. anyway two great solutions here so far. so thanks both.

Re: custom supports with multiple processes

hey that fixed it! thank you! shaved 30mins off estimated print time too. side note,the straps you see are separate sub objects in my model. i was all flustered because they were printing poorly and with gaps inside the boot they dive into.. i saw another post about separate all meshes and that did ...

custom supports with multiple processes

hello. i have recently started to experiment with multiple processes. my factory file won't attach because it is 15mb in size (how could i reduce that? or get you what you need?) my steps were this: 1. i loaded up my model 2. used the tools > custom support structures to add supports and then remove...

Re: Tip of the Day 32 - Self Intersecting Surfaces

thank you for the separate meshes option! it appears to be working great for a pair of cowboy boots i'm printing with straps that are separate sub-objects embedded into the boot sides.

Re: Multi processes by layer

i suppose my question boils down to: can we set change in print processes to be "by layer" vs "by height"? ============================================================ i've searched but didn't see anything. also maybe it's a feature request? but i'm starting to print with multiple processes based on...

Re: Skirt won't print if global z offset is negative and larger than layer height

hey so i recently i ran into the ability to print 2 layers of a brim/skirt (and presumably as many as i want). so if you set your brim layers to 2 or 3 does it print even with the negative z offset?

Re: how to prevent support on just one of the parts in a process

thanks i'l lhave to remember this!

generally speaking, do process support settings override or combine with the support tool settings? or just the settings that are in the process that are not present in the support tool?

Re: brim / skirt from part not ooze shield

thanks. we'll see. i found out rafts are supposed to print that slowly ha. i've been thinking about this more as i am getting some warp on the corners of a thin building wall. i think it's probably the best idea to use a raft in these situations. i brim could be beneficial, but i think a raft would ...

Re: Top layer feature type

you know, i wondered about that for a second too... if this is such a "thin" roof, even though there is plenty of infill, it would probably be weaker. or, it might de-laminate? what i'm printing now is working out fantastically. my settings are dialed in and i'm printing like a madman. many small bu...
