Re: Is there a way to reverse the direction of print?

No, there isn`t.
Considering your 1st post and having problems with undextrusion at the beginning of the perimeter
changing the directon will not be a good workmanship solution.
You need to dial in your settings properly, e.g. retraction/restart settings....

Re: Top solid layers for process1, bottom solid layers process2 not printing

Sorry for having not the solution you want to get. Wanting your part having walls for sand, water or whatever in it you will have do do that as per design/construction. (and although the corrent release is quite buggy) S3D does exactly what it should. Where there are internal or outside walls in the...

Re: Top solid layers for process1, bottom solid layers process2 not printing

That is exactly what one want it to be with multiple processes. Having one (solid) object there will be no solid layers in between, exept the bottom and top ones. Not with one process, and not with multiple ones. You can use different processes for what you are attempting and S3d does exatly what yo...

Re: V 4.1 Retraction at layer change and outline crossing

So I am back on V4.0.1 with its flaws,now. I at least know how to dodge those minor nuisances. And I think S3D better would do that, too, and postpone the update. It just and plain is not working. No idea whether the intern or apprentice picked a wrong file for the release upload but that can not be...

Re: S3D 4.1 - Still putting solid layers over air....

............. The issue reported here has been like this for a very long time..and has been reported quite rightly as a BUG several times. Basically, the soild infill is being extruded so it hangs over fresh air at the point where the extruder does an about-turn...resulting is sagging if you have s...

Re: V 4.1 Retraction at layer change and outline crossing

Just got an answere from Support.... Thank you for the Factory File. This does look to be an issue involving the combination of Start Points and Avoid crossing Outlines. The issue can be worked around in the meantime by using Optimized Start Points or by adding a 3rd perimeter which will force the s...

Re: V 4.1 Retraction at layer change and outline crossing

I was using this feature most of yesterday and it was working fine in V4.1. I'm also looking at a preview right now for my next print and the feature is clearly working. So it's possible it's something related to that specific part. Can you attach the factory file? Sorry, I can`t for an error messa...

Re: V 4.1 Retraction at layer change and outline crossing

Are you sure this is due to retraction? Could it be something along the lines of the issue I reported here: https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=11649 If so, you will of course also see it in the preview, so if you don't, then it is a different issue. No, this is no thin wall or damaged...

[FIXED] V 4.1 Retraction at layer change and outline crossing

I have been using this benchmark ever since and now with the update I noticed something what I take being a bug. Factory file not attachable for being to big!? (5,9mb?) I just uploaded angle.factory to support using this topic. This one printed well ever since, it now seems, that S3d trys to hide th...
