Re: Problems with conical surface

Is there a reason you are printing it with the dome down? If not, just rotate the part 180 degrees so the dome is on top. Otherwise do what CompoundCarl suggested. Increase the Dense Upper layer to 100% and put upper layer separation to 0. You will have to clean the excess filament from it but it wi...

Re: First print layers density question

I am impressed you got a good sticky layer at 300% Layer height and 100% extrusion width (unless you have a large diameter nozzle, then it wouldn't be as impressive). Typically you want want a lower layer height and increased extrusion width so the filament is really smashed onto the build plate.

I've asked multiple times about when the next update is and have never gotten even an estimate.

Re: Gap size

I pretty much do what billyd does above. If I am printing a resolution of .1mm and above, I level the bed cold using a .2mm gap. If i am printing resolutions under .1mm, I level the bed AND nozzle hot with my .08mm feeler gauge. When doing the print, i use 3 skirt outlines at 4mm offset and set the ...

I think you made a mistake when you say it's 1mm, I would say it would be more like 0.1mm or less.

My bad, I meant .1mm.

Re: First print layers density question

After a couple emails to the Simplify3d Team, I got some answers that were pretty helpful. Here were my questions and the answers given: EXTRUDER Tab Overview 1. When using Manual, and decreasing the EXTRUSION WIDTH below the actual nozzle diameter, does it decrease the amount of filament extruded? ...

Re: Help making smaller details solid

The way you design the posts may a BIG difference. What program did you use to design it? I had a similar issue as to where a part kept breaking right where the infill stopped and the solid layers started. I ended up using Meshmixer in one instance. And, Simplify3d's ability to add things to eachoth...
