Re: Calibrarion axis steps x y z DREMEL 3D45

If you are wanting to dial in dimensions on your machine to get more accurate parts, I have a procedure I've used very successfully. You can find it in this thread. Note that there are newer files posted in the last post. https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6130&p=26646 If you are needi...

I've generally had to try a few tools when repairing a big file. I haven't found one tool that works great on everything.

Re: S3D Misses The Mark On Weight And Time Esimates By A Lot!

Make sure the DENSITY of the filament you are using is set correctly. When I've checked part weight predictions they've been spot on. That calculation is a cake walk compared to print time.

I would love to see accel and jerk settings for different build features and moves integrated in to the UI.

Re: Model Position Offets -9999.00

No, modeled in inches. Thus the 2540 scale factor. The minor adjustments on the X and Y scale are calculated to account for machine and material behavior resulting in dimensionally accurate parts.

My post right above yours pretty much sums it up.
Not enough top layers or the infill % is not high enough.
I agree - I have printed a LOT of PETG. I rarely use an infill percentage below 30% with 3 or 4 top layers. I've never had an issue.

Re: Support Separation from part not working as expected. Circular support generation is horrible.

I haven't seen any mention of Support Pillar Resolution. I suspect this is the issue with the circular model- that the OP is using the default of 4mm.

Try a support pillar resolution of 1mm on the circular part.

Model Position Offets -9999.00

Here's an issue I hadn't seen until 4.1.1 It only happens with some models. This one passed the repair checks so I think the model is clean. If I open the factory file in an older version they come up with the same offset, but I don't recall this happening when using those versions. Capture.JPG Fact...

Re: Twill Weave First Layer?

I think the results would be disappointing. It could actually be tested with a couple ziggity-zaggity models and two processes. There would be no differentiation between zones laying down in the same direction. In the carbon fiber image there is differentiation because of the curvature of the weave.

Re: [4.1.1] "Place Surface on Bed" broken

This is not how it used to work and is not the expected (or desired) behavior. I have 4.0, 4.01 and 4.1.1 on my machine and all three versions behave the same. I have a model with parallel surfaces and regardless of which surface I select it does not drop the model into the table - so while I can u...
