Good luck with that. Mere public mention of the issue sends Arthur Wolf into a major snit.

Suggestion: Post a Work In Progress and let us help

As a software developer myself, I understand why Simplify3D Developers do some of the things they do. I understand why they won't announce release dates. I understand why they don't have a try-before-you-buy policy. I get it. I would like to suggest, however, that S3D could benefit from posting Work...

Re: Is there a way to slow down the X/Y printing during fill

I sure wish I could just set the speeds directly instead of having them all be relative to the infill speed. Just a little math... default speed * percentage = actual speed. :) Or desired speed / default speed = percentage No, not just a little math, because if I want to change the infill speed I h...

Re: Howto make Solid walls?

The issue has to do with S3D's thin wall behavior, which is a major topic of discussion on this forum. S3D will only fill with perimeters in a solid fashion if the wall thickness is approximately an even integer multiple of the extrusion width. It can be slightly less than that depending on the amou...

Re: 3D Honeycomb Infill

There are some details of the development of this infill at https://engineerdog.com/2015/03/08/3d-printing-a-3d-honeycomb-infill-concept/ , and some actual mechanical tests of it at https://engineerdog.com/2015/09/02/mechanical-testing-3d-printed-parts-results-and-recommendations/ . The thing to rem...

Re: 3D Honeycomb Infill

I would like this also. It seems to reduce warping relative to some infills, too. And it allows for better transmission of shear strength through a part that cannot be oriented on the bed in way that makes the currently available infill patterns efficient.

Re: Anyone notice problem w/S3D filling in open frames?

I get this all the time and I definitely wish they'd fix it. It Seems to occur when the layer height is an even divisor for the height of a vertex, such as when features change significantly right at a vertex in the STL file.

Re: Software Bug???

This is usually a problem with the STL file. I find that S3D is sensitive to some numerical issues in the STL, and the problem is especially prevalent when there are a very large number of facets and when sharp changes in the surface happen exactly on the layer boundary. There are two solutions you ...
