Re: Tips for Printing Gear

Sorry about that, it appears that I missed your comment. No need to apologize :D For the "small and tiny and precise" parts listen to dkightley! From what I see he's printing those uber small miniatures for a while so his experience is serious in that regard. You want to read what he writes about "...

Re: Tips for Printing Gear

I trick that I use when I don't have access to the small nozzle is to edit the gear a bit to move the "tips" of the gears further from the part. This is not hard to do when you are making gears from scratch, editing the STL - not that simple.. Then I print it with thinnest "extrude diameter" as my p...

Re: My ABS prints break easily

I will soon have an IR heat reader to see about those temperatures. if you are not getting something very expensive and you are not very proficient with it IR contactless thermometer is going to give very inprecise results. you have to deal with both emmissivity (not easy with alu heat block, brass...

Re: Elegible for upgrade?

If S3D starts a phone home system, I will be demanding my money back. afaik it's how it works now. it calls home to check if it should run or not Nothing is even remotely free with professional machines. can't say for "all of them", but for e.g. inspire industrial printers come with free software t...

Re: Elegible for upgrade?

The price isn't that high. Most industrial software runs into the 1000's a year with maintenance contracts additional. actually not true, with number of professional machines you get the professional software for free with free updates for life. they are linked to work with their machines only but ...

Re: Bridging layer goes in wrong direction

If the photo in this Twitter post re testing is of testing changes for the pending upgrade, I'm somewhat worried that the main issue being talked about here isn't even tested for, never mind being addressed: https://twitter.com/Simplify3D/status/878364581596450816 Definitely not, the images are of ...
