Re: My ABS prints break easily

Sounds like you are doing everything right, try the thinner layers. 240 isn't going to kill your PTFE. Could even be bad filament. It helps to see the model. Thinner layers will "smash" together a little bit better. Try .2mm. Print slower, maybe up the temp a bit to 240. Usually higher temps (to a p...

Usually higher temps (to a point) fuse together better with the previous layer. Gotta look at your infill structure also and infill to shell overlap. More shel...

Re: Release updates?

I love S3D, but as a hobbyist my tolerance for paid upgrades is low when a very good free alternative is available. Making upgrades cost money is sure way to kill the product completely It's impossible to run a business that way. Why would you expect them to keep building new features and never get...

Re: Elegible for upgrade?

Nothing is even remotely free with professional machines. Software just gets rolled up into the many thousands per year maintenance fees. Generally those 150-200 so called printers are pieces of rinky dink crap. You'll be free to use version 3 and 4 for as long as you like. It "sounds" like version ...

Re: Bad first layer on support material

Make sure your first layer after supports (bridge) is running at least a 30 degrees different angle than the supports. Run supports at like 30 and 70 degrees. 20 percent and then about 70% dense. Also bridge calcs come into play here. Start with 100 extrusion on bridging and 120% speed.

Re: Release updates?

Yes, for the version you have. Terms of service can be changed and most likely will for version 4.

You could just continue to use version 3 forever.

Re: Release updates?

Problem is the "free" options work, but they aren't close to S3d in functionality and customizability.

Re: Elegible for upgrade?

The price isn't that high. Most industrial software runs into the 1000's a year with maintenance contracts additional.

It will most likely by a small upgrade fee for previous users.
