Re: Full Grid vs Rectilinear Infill?

How would this differ from using rectilinear with the "print every infill angle for each layer" checkbox ?

X/Y Axis Movement Speed Questions

I'm doing 0.1 layer height prints on my Dremel Idea Builder and normally have the base speed at 30mm/s with outlines at 60% for the best quality with reduced ringing, etc. The X/Y rapid movement speed defaults to 120mm/s but I'm wondering if I should try lowering that to around 80mm/s to avoid vibra...

Full Grid vs Rectilinear Infill?

What are the main differences between the classic Rectilinear infill and the new Grid option? Are there cases where you would want to use one vs the other?

Re: Z Speed settings in "Other" tab

I'm still a little unclear on this setting. Can it be used to reduce the actual z movement speed or is it only a numerical variable to try and produce more accurate print times?

Re: Heavy Lines Banding - Correspond to Detail and Supports?

Aesdaile, Your theories are probably right on target. What I'm not sure about are the defined horizontal lines that extent all the way around the perimeter which even happen with no supports but at a height that corresponds to a small detail on the back side (my initials). These are very straight an...

Re: How to get the smoothest top and bottom layer

BTW - there is a first layer extrusion width that can be set on the "Layer" tab. This should help you get a smooth/solid bottom. I may be mistaken, but doesn't this setting also adjust the spacing of the lines accordingly? In other words if you specify 200% width you end up with half as many lines ...

Heavy Lines Banding - Correspond to Detail and Supports?

I am using a Dremel re-branded Dreamer with Simplify 3d. After working well for a while it has recently developed a variety of issues, one of them being heavy lines that occur and various heights. What is interesting is on the latest part I have prominent lines in the EXACT SAME HEIGHT for two runs ...

Re: G-Code Preview not working

I get this on occasion in 2.2.2, 3.0 and 3.0.1. Seems to happen first on larger more complex models and once it occurs I will keep getting black previews and crashing on ALL my files for a time. After restarting S3D several times and loading various factory files then previewing it will eventually g...

Re: Slow Slicing, Bad Previews and Crashing after 3.0.1 upda

Just discovered 3.0.0 is still installed. It slices normal speed but my previews are all black and program crashes if I move the layer sliders. Was working fine before I installed 3.0.1
