Re: Beta Test Feature

Doug nailed it - that was a really non-relevant reply from Jake. Didn't read, or a get lost..? Whatever reason, IMHO, an in-house test facility can never obtain a full picture of how a program will work in the wild.

Re: Proper documentation and more support for variables

The information available about how S3D works over the last two years has improved, but the majority of that available is still provided by the Community. For the amount of money paid by so many people, I would have thought by now that it was high time a PROPER IN-DEPTH manual on every single functi...

Re: Better Infill Control - 'Point of Origin'

+1 This and the general difficulty encountered adding and removing precise support is something that limits the usefulness of S3D for me. The amount of times I have needed fine-grained automatic infill over large areas of a complex model, then only to have to spend up to an hour rapidly click on tin...

Re: Can't Disable Cooling Fan?

What Doug said - There are two fans. One cools the filament path and remains on all the time - otherwise the printer will stop working very rapidly. The second one cools the surface of the printed part to quickly solidify the extruded plastic. For PETG, you have a lot of things you can do with the s...

Re: S3D Development Update...?

Well, in my opinion the lack of communication is by far the worse thing a "small" company with this target end-users can do. I'm actually with you on this. S3D charge a shedload of cash for something that is available for free elsewhere. Simplify3D is generally a really good bit of software - it do...

Re: S3D Development Update...?

Funny how they also locked the update thread... ...What worries me is it is only "4.1" and not 5.0 which implies it is not that large an update or? Would love to see a feature list soon. Locking was probably for the best, but I do wonder how long this thread will stay unlocked for..? :D I was initi...

Re: Help find the problem!

I think the wobbly side layers are also due to you having your layer height too high - you are losing adhesion between layers. If you are printing with a 0.4mm nozzle, a height of 0.3mm is pushing the limits of the layer height (unless you get sneaky with your extrusion multiplier and print width). ...
