Re: Build Time correction

I WISH it could be reduced to even under 20%. I'm sometimes fighting much, much higher differences! I tried printing the Fillenium Malcon ;) - S3D suggested just under 6 hours. It took over 16!!!!! While that's extreme, 20%, 30%, or more deviation at 5+ hours is horrible. If you need us to look up a...

Re: a couple of ideas for dual extruder printing

Definitely a plus one on this. I'm not at that point yet, but I'm being forced to fight Cura doing odd warming times, and I just can't wait to get back to S3D with my new dual extruder. I think this would be useful.

Re: Top solid fill inflation

This is not simply a +1, but plus +1000000000. This should really be a pretty simple implementation if we're just talking a layer or two. It would fix many problems and you can leave it to the users to tweak the settings. It solves sooooo many problems in one go. Of course I do understand if we're t...

Re: Smoothing/sealing PLA with Tetrahydrofuran

I prefer XTC-3D - http://www.smooth-on.com/Epoxy-Coatings ... index.html

Specifically designed for this application and a bit less nasty or volatile. But thanks for additional info on what others are trying! Always good to know more of whats out there.

Re: Tip of the Day 18 - Advanced Tab, a technical analysis

Hopefully you'll update this in a bit for the new setting on 3.0+ on Movement Behavior. I'd like to get a bit more explanation on that (though I may come back myself if I find a great answer to share here).

Re: End code scripting

Thanks for that code; that's exactly what I was looking for when I randomly ran across it! I would think that the answer would be to "de-suck" and pull the extruder back a few mm to suck filament back up. While the hot end is still on you'll get blobbing, but I'd guess pulling back .5 mm or so befor...

Re: 2.0.1 update osx - any version notes?

Did you add back in the Drag and Drop for stl files that seems to have been accidentally removed in 2.0?

Re: curling edges

My best suggestion is to add skirt with no separation from your part (also known as brim). If my part is larger like that, I'll go 3-6 perimeters for it. The next is: how are you cooling your part? If you have ABS, any cooling will lead to cracking and possibly separation like that if you don't have...

Re: printer runs off print bed and extrudes filament

Is that during the print or Pre printing? I know my printer had been trying to home (different type) and doing what you mention, but only at the start, never during a print. Well to be more accurate, my printer tries to kill itself by smashing through all axis when trying to home... But that's only ...

Re: Printer stalls, what steps should I take?

This is a known ramps issue. It comes because of lag between feeding commands through USB overwhelming the buffer. Luckily this program has force next - you have to do some screwed up things to sometimes (but rarely) recover in other programs. Luckily under the last update, simplify3d added an auto ...
