Re: Big gaps between layers

There might be some mesh issues in this model. Version 5.1 used Positive Fill by default, while this does work with a lot of models there are plenty of cases where it does not work as well. This is why we implemented the Alternating Fill AND Positive Fill option. Try using 'Alternating Fill' in the ...

Re: different folder memory for Import/Export dialogue

You should be able to do this by going to Tools > Options (or Simplify3D > Preferences on Mac), then change the File Selection Behavior to ‘Remember a unique last used directory for each separate file type’.

Re: Layer change script problems for the bambu p1s

Ah I see where the problem is. In your last few lines you've returned to the previous Z position, which makes it skip a layer since you've put them in the Post Layer Change Script. Basically this is what was happening before: G1 Z10 ; layer change ; your nozzle cleaning script G1 X[previous_position...

Re: 5.1 crashes on start

Please try opening Windows Explorer and navigating to the following directory:

C:/Users/%USERNAME%/AppData/Local/Simplify3D/S3D-Software-V5

You may need to enable hidden folders to access this directory. Once there, please try deleting the savedState.factory file, then opening Simplify3D again.

Re: More issues with S3D 5.1.2

Issue 1: I just tried this but couldn't replicate the problem. Could you attach a factory file or the STL file? I would be happy to look at it. Issue 2: We have moved to using a 3D gizmo. The hotkeys are: Q - Quit Transforming model W - Change Position E - Change Scaling R - Change Rotation T - Open...

Re: print height limited

You could attach the factory file here. The Factory File is a unique file compiled in Simplify3D. The file contains complete information about your project (model, printer, process settings, etc.). To create the file, open the software and load your project. Then go to File > Save Factory File as...

Re: Infill not conected to angled print geometry

The mix of different printing patterns in this particular model is due to it being an overhang, and the solid layer patterns are printed together with the perimeters. In our internal testing, it usually results in stronger parts. If you would like the solid layers only at bottom and top, you could c...

Re: Layer change script problems for the bambu p1s

I would recommend using the following Layer Change scripts for your purposes, here are two variants: To execute it at layers above 1: {IF "[current_layer_number] > 1”}; Place nozzle cleaning command here To execute it every 50 layers: {IF "([current_layer_number] % 50) == 0"}; Place n...
