Re: Support Angle for Rectangular Border?

Yes. I did quite a lot of testing early on in my 3d printing days. Layer height turned out to be the variable with the greatest impact on supported build quality.

Re: Support Angle for Rectangular Border?

I use support angles of 45 and -45 - one layer each. I then use 3 layers of dense support which will lay down at the same angles. This provides a nice platform for the new material to lay down on. I almost always have separation layers set to 1. If the build on top of the support is too loose I redu...

Re: add surface pattern by varying extrusion rate on the perimeters

I've seen examples of that in vase-mode prints - never solid prints. It's a very cool concept and would be fun to play with for sure.

Re: Text on 3d area is garbled

My system is nVidia based (Quadro K2100m). Don't see this issue.

Re: My Bed temperature fluctuates

I'd guess you have a broken conductor in your wire harness.

Re: Solid infill for transparent object ??

Just a thought.... Maybe increasing the amount of bottom and top layers covering the whole object might be better then playing with infill settings. This really will be 100% ifill.... I agree 100%. Rather than trying 100% infill just set the number of bottom layers to 9999. I don't have S3D in fron...

Re: How to keep corners good when printing fast?

I'd call that going too fast.

You might improve the results by increasing the nozzle temperature which will reduce the viscosity, elasticity, and tensile strength of the extruded bead and might improve the layer bonding.

Re: Upgrade to 4.0.1 left 4.0.0 behind

I also suggest keeping both versions. 4.01 introduced a couple of issues.
