Re: Ironing

Why spend time "ironing"? Instead spend time getting your profile setup right and no "ironing" is needed. I see ironing as a bad work around for bad profile setup.

Re: Build time still way out

What if the end user changes "them" speeds?

There are hundreds of printers also, them speeds would need to be figured out for all.

I'd rather S3D spend time adding useful features that matter and fixing bugs.

Re: Add retraction for duration of retraction

Re: Elephant foot

Is it worth messing with and losing print quality because of warping or things lifting off the bed? You could probably add a small radius to the bottom of the design, but that isn't related to S3d. I would just scrape it off and worry about other things. It can't take more than a minute to touch tha...

Re: Add retraction for duration of retraction

There isn't true "suction" in a hot end, It isn't a hydraulically sealed system, like a syringe. A lot forget to use the coast and - retract values. Remember for every retract there is an equal and opposite "prime" where the same amount of filament is pushed that was previously retracted. Using a sm...

Re: FFCP Z Axis Short

Ya, never know, the lead screw might be out of spec. I expect mine to be within .1 for every 30mm, so over a 150mm height that might be off by .5

Plastic does shrink also, I print all my models at about 100.5% to 101% size
