Re: Dual nozzle, multiple layer heights

If you have your detail parts as separate STLs, you can assign them a different extruder with completely different settings. If it is just one model, there is no way to specify, say, threads to be printed with the second extruder. You can set the infill to print with the second extruder, and use the...

Re: Breakaway Support Structures

Given that every printer is different, I would recommend using our supports article to learn more about Simplify3D supports and how to tune them for easier removal: https://www.simplify3d.com/support/arti ... tructures/

Re: Gap Fill Issues

Re: Superfluous Support Material Generation

As Doug said, lowering the resolution will help. If you Open the Support Generation tool and Generate Automatic Supports, you can see that the larger pillars are intersecting that small hole in order to be able to support the surface above the void.

Re: Skipping 1st support layer???
