Re: Convert Image to 3d

Could try exporting to STL. Import into something like Sketchup, trim to a circle, then re-export as STL for slicing in S3D.

Re: won't print some parts

When this happens, usually a "reverse face" will fix the issue. If it doesn't, reverse the face in the desgn software. If manifold is verified, then filp an adjacent face and flip it back.

Re: Feature req: first layer speed should not be a percentag

A specified first layer speed would be an interesting advanced option. I've only seen it entered as a percentage of the normal print speed... The extruder speed seems to vary on the print situation, a percentage is probably the only way to keep those rules intact. If this an option is added for a fi...

HI, I second that cura anchor point is a good. Just bought S3D and use it on the same printer. Bed sticking and first layer fail...

Re: How to solve weak vertical structures

METHOD 2 Make 2 processes. Make process 1 start at the bottom and go up until the height you want the extra solid infill for strength. Make process 2 identical to process 1 but make it start at the exact height process 1 stops at. You just need to go into "Advanced" settings tab and set the "Start ...
