Layer Change G-Code

Please add the Layer Change G-Code script {IF TOOL=?} so I can make my own custom purging, priming and wipe tower solutions. This will complement the Tool Change G-Code script {IF NEWTOOL=?} Also please add the script [next_Z_position] to both the Layer Change G-Code and Tool Change G-Code tabs so t...

Re: Retraction Prime Fail in S3D 4.0

S3D retracts 1.72 mm, then resets to 0, but fails to prime the extruder 1.72 mm to start the print; hence S3D is just printing air until it prints long enough to push 1.72 mm of filament to the tip of the nozzle. This big bug in S3D 4.0 occurs when using absolute extrusion distance, but not relative...

[SOLVED] Retraction Prime Fail in S3D 4.0

After printing the ooze shield or the skirt, S3D retracts, then fails to prime the extruder before printing the part. This results in part of the print missing.

Re: Gaps between infill and outline

You don't say if your printer has a Bowden tube or not. Retraction distances with a Bowden tube are typically 5mm or more. You may also need to throw in a small negative Extra Restart Distance (like -0.1 mm). I use a retraction speed of 2400 mm/min. That is how fast it sucks the filament back into ...

Re: Gaps between infill and outline

In the pic of the "H", I'm printing with Outline Overlap 90% with a very slow print speed of 5 mm/sec for accuracy and retracting a distance of 1.72 mm at a speed of 25 mm/sec which is perfect for the print speed based on a calibration cube that I printed. I'm still at a loss why S3D overshoots the ...

Re: Gaps between infill and outline

You're quite correct in saying that the new gap fill feature for thin walls only applies to thin walls. The issue you are describing is gaps in solid infill......and there's a setting to adjust where the infill joins the perimeters. It's on the Infill tab - Outline overlap. Try setting this to a hi...

Re: Gaps between infill and outline

So it looks like Gap Fill is only designed to work with Outline/Perimeters Shells in the Layer tab. If I set Outline/Perimeters Shells = 5 and in the Advanced tab and set Minimum Extrusion Length = 0.1 and Minimum Printing Width = 1% I get much better results. However I still see a gap in the surrou...

Gaps between infill and outline

New Simplify 4.0 advertisement says "Thin walls and gaps can now be filled with a single dynamic extrusion that is automatically adjusted to fill the available space" Please tell me how to fill the gaps in the below "O" and "E". I already went to the Advanced tab and reduced the Single Extrusions se...

Re: Broken - Perform retraction during wipe movment

Thanks spegelius

The ReadMe says to disable retraction during wipe in S3D. Does your program still use the S3D wipe code after the retract?

Also, the document says it's tested on the Promethius. Should it also work on a dual nozzle dual extruder like the E3D Chimera?

Re: Broken - Perform retraction during wipe movment

Cool, can you please send me the code for the post processor so I can give it a whirl?
