Re: Variable acceleration and Jerk

How does Simplify3D estimate print time without knowing the jerk and acceleration of the printers for which it is generating gcode? I notice S3D's print times are off significantly from the estimates sometimes. Is not knowing the jerk and acceleration the reason for this? Also, please allow jerk and...

Re: Best Glue for PETG & PLA

I've had good success with Loctite 401 for bonding PLA. Still it looks like there is a new adhesive that might take the cake for bonding PLA called 3DGloop. Here it is tested against cyanoacrylate and epoxy and the 3DGloop won handily. In fact the PLA failed before the adhesive failed: https://youtu...

Re: Locked Prime Line (Or Any Object) Location

It can be in the Start Code; however I imported mine as an object and I also have prime pillars that I want to stay in a fixed location when I import objects and Center them. A very fast prime pillar for changing colors, followed by a slow prime pillar to eliminate pressure. I'm not sure Coast At En...

Re: Infill / Outline Overlap Not Working As Advertised

Here's an example of the letter Y next to the letter T with Outline Overlap = 0: Letter Y Next To Letter T - Top Layer Outline Overlap = 0.JPG Here's an example of the letter Y next to the letter T w...
