Re: Spiral mode adding unwanted islands when scaling up

Did you download the RocketforScaling version of the download or the standard one? The text on Thingiverse states there's an issue scaling the original. EDIT: I've fixed the rocket file for you. Attached..... AND ANOTHER EDIT: I think I've sorted the rocket plane as well. Attached.... I think I tri...

Re: Spiral mode adding unwanted islands when scaling up

OK, I see it now. Ouch. Yeah, I've been having doubts about the software used before seeing this model, this isn't helping.

I did put it through Netfabb a few times but fixing that flaw is outside my current skills.

Spiral mode adding unwanted islands when scaling up

I'm seeing some odd artifacts in S3D 3.x when I try to scale up these models for spiral mode: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:492176 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:458903 I'm using Windows 8.1 I get this when I'm doing 175% or higher scaling. Using cutaway view, those dots in the center of the ro...

Re: A separate controller-only app for tablets?

Yeah, that's a good point. My WinBook is an Intel Atom-based processor. I haven't run S3D on it yet, but tried a couple other slicer/controller programs. It seems the market is ripening for a tablet-optimized 3D printer controller app. Well, one that's better than the 3D printing tablet that's out t...

Re: A separate controller-only app for tablets?

I believe the software is already touch screen compatible. I use it on my surface pro all the time :D Nice. If the tablet I try is good enough, I'm weighing getting another license anyway and run two machines with a tablet on each, though I think there's an opportunity for an app tuned for the task...

A separate controller-only app for tablets?

I was thinking it would be nice to have a separate S3D controller & preview app for a nice full-graphics controller. I intend to keep using a laptop & desktop for the actual slicing because of the slicing speed and use an SD card from the tablet. I wouldn't mind paying for an app, but preferably wit...

Re: Better top surface stitching & bosses on top layers

Cura, also doesn't have this bug at all. Yeah. I just checked it. Here's what I've tested so far. Cura doesn't have the bug. KISSlicer doesn't have the bug. FlashPrint's ffslicer engine doesn't have this bug. FlashPrint's Skeinforge engine doesn't show this bug. It gets around it by making a solid ...

Re: Better top surface stitching & bosses on top layers

Screen Shot 2015-02-10 at 4.57.20 PM.png Baron; thank you for illustrating the problem so clearly and thoughroughly. S3D does a lot of nice stuff, but this issue is pretty annoying such that I've started looking at other slicers. I don't always have the luxury of adding a chamfer, especially if it'...

Re: Better top surface stitching & bosses on top layers

If my profile is correct, the setting was 10% infill, 5 top layers. This doesn't happen a lot, but this one part took 300g of filament and a 15 hour run. Now I'm evaluating my options, such as switching slicers. Switching slicers is a long haul because of how much work it takes to dial in the settin...
