Re: How to use "First Layer Settings"?

If my first layer extrusions look good but maybe have a little gapping between I might add a -0.01 Z offset and see. Then maybe increase to -0.02 etc but first I make sure my leveling is giving a proper nozzle to bed gap. Going to a higher first layer height will allow you to squish it a bit more an...

Re: 1st Wall of Test Cube is Too Thin

If the wall is thinner then try upping the extrusion multiplier such as 0.92 to 0.93. Just a small change and see how it does.
I think if you are +- 0.2 you are pretty good.

I sometimes will do a 2 wall hollow cube to see what I get for a combined wall thickness.

Re: How to use "First Layer Settings"?

I think you need not over complicate the first layer settings. Personally I use first layer height of 100-120%. I move up toward 120% if I see minor low spots and I might add a little -Z offset to give a little more squish. I generally leave the first layer extrusion width at 100% unless I have a sp...

Re: FFCP Stops Mid-Print when Using Simplify3D, but not FlashPrint

One thing I found was that when S3D says the export is complete … don't believe it. Give it a while to save to the card. You may be getting an incomplete file.
You can try saving to the PC first then copy to the card and see if it helps.

Re: How to use "First Layer Settings"?

When you reduce first layer height below 100% it also reduces the extrusion multiplier I believe. Use the global offsets to get more squish. I usually have my first layer height at 100-120% depending so to compensate for a bed that isn't perfectly flat in all areas. When you increase the first layer...

Re: S3D not recogizing ID and OD of part

Look on the advanced tab at the bottom right and uncheck "merge all outlines …" See if it helps.

Re: Cannot remove internal supports when you have open the cross section view.

I just found this also in 4.12.
If the cross section is open then you cannot delete supports. If you close it then you can.

The filament density setting is used to calculate the projected weight of your part. Changing that value will not change the amount of material that is extruded.
Thank you.
