Re: Better top surface stitching & bosses on top layers

This is again showing the problem in Simplify3D, but this time the top box is slanted. Notice how the right side of the top box is attached correctly, but the left side is not. Strange.

Re: Better top surface stitching & bosses on top layers

Here is the same object sliced using FlashPrint's ffslicer engine, but viewed in Simplify3D. FlashPrint's ffslicer engine does a proper job. All shells are connected. There is no weak point anywhere.

Re: Better top surface stitching & bosses on top layers

Screen Shot 2015-02-10 at 4.57.20 PM.png I am having a similar issue where when you are stacking one shape on top of another, only the outside loop is conncected to the solid part of the model. The picture above shows this very obvious slicing bug you're talking about in Simplify3D 2.2.2 which has ...

Re: purge walls for dual printing (and singel)

Screen Shot 2015-02-10 at 1.19.32 PM.png Here's a picture to illustrate the bug where the first and last tool change scripts are done with 2 changes per layer, not 1 as the others are. I zoomed in to show just the purge walls created by my G-code. I specifically made the walls overlap some so that ...

Re: purge walls for dual printing (and singel)

You don't need different scripts for the different extruders. Use the same script for both. A tool change occurs on each layer, so as long as both extruders are using the same tool change script and drawing their lines in the same place, it will be fine. A tool change doesn't trigger the tool chang...

Process Time Limit for Dual Extrusion

Currently we have no control over how often processes switch from one to the next. I have seen cases where processes print 2 layers before switching to the next, which is not good when doing dual extrusion. When doing dual extrusion it can be beneficial to limit how long each process can print for. ...

Re: purge walls for dual printing (and singel)

A word of caution with these tricks. DO NOT RELY ON THEM. They are not officially supported by Simplify3D. They are hacks. I was doing tricks to get 2 colored skirts prior to Simplify3D 2.2.0, and made a ton of factory files that relied on the tricks, and now none of those factory files print proper...

Re: purge walls for dual printing (and singel)

You could do this by adding 4 lines to your tool change script. That will make sure that the commands are executed before EVERY tool change, so just tell it to go print a square somewhere and it will prime the nozzle. Wow! Please enlighten me, I do not have any experience with writing G-code. I ass...

Re: More options for stronger infill.

I do both prototypes for structural parts and objects designed just for art/beauty. Sometimes with prototypes, beauty is more important than structural strength. Actually, with prototypes, I have banned anything but "perfect" looking models from being viewed by outsiders. It is amazing how many peo...
