Bottom layer holes being FILLED in

I have a print where there are 2 holes in the bottom layer (could be second layer, hard to tell.), however S3D is auto filling in the holes for the first layer which is annoying as I must cut them out. Does anyone know what is going on here? The model has NO errors and shows in the before prepare to...

Re: Yellow platform in wrong location

Ok I managed to alter the stl model in blender so it appears correct now, the final issue is the Tools>Options>Machine and printer model option does not save after reloading the program, it just defaults back to MakerBot_Replicator1.stl. Does anyone know how to overcome this? UPDATE: Figured it out,...

Re: S3D Skipping preheat process, ignoring stabilize...

The problem was (as I normally resolve them myself before mod allows thread) related to the Gcode being different for my machine. For example M109 Sn is for my extruder stabilize, additional to this I can't have Tn values for a few of these commands or my printer ignores them. I believe this is beca...

Yellow platform in wrong location

So after finally realising my printer doesn't like Tn commands and also doesn't use M140 and a few other commands, I managed to get my printer working correctly :P. However because my home location is at zero position (0.0, for x/y) the graphical yellow bed polygon shows the print bed (bottom-right ...

S3D Skipping preheat process, ignoring stabilize...

So I have a Ecubmaker Fantasy printer which is like the CTC printer however runs on older firmware because Ecubmaker company is AMAZINGLY bad at supporting the product. Given the control board and firmware is LOCKED and I must deal with what I have, I preconfigured S3D profile for CTC and disabled t...

Re: Trying to print stl file, software claims it's a x3g!

I found the setting for it, has in two places, firmware selection and in process screen under scripts (create .x3g).

Once those are off it's fine, however my printer is unsupported so I gotta figure allot of things out. Atm it skips preheating and just tries to print solid filament..

Trying to print stl file, software claims it's a x3g!

After 2 months of downtime waiting for parts, I finally get to try out S3D. The first issue is I open up my STL file, spend time configuring everything, go to print, printer does not support x3g file!?! Is there a fault with the software? my printer is a Ecubmaker Fantasy, I did just use the CTC pri...
