Re: Why don't I see infill

To try to address your questions The size of the model is fixed. If the wall is, say, 3mm thick then it will print (within tolerance) at 3mm. You can then define the number of shells (the actual perimeters on a vertical surface) to give you a more solid form. If there is then a gap left within the s...

Re: Why don't I see infill

You misunderstand the way the infill works. Infill is how much of a solid body is filled. What you are creating is not a solid body and only its walls are effectively solid and only they will be "infilled". To do what you want you need to create a body which is a solid entity. The slicer then define...

Re: Quality Issue in Flexible TPU

Did you run the same temperature towers on all printers? If not, could it be that the thermistor is a little out of calibration on the errant one? Perhaps try a slightly higher temperature on that one and see whether it helps?

Re: Jedi mind powers doesnt work on "Place surface on bed"

Is this your design? If so, could you add another element to it (not physically connected) which was flat and which you could use as a datum? You can then align that part and it would bring the other in line. <edit> If it's not your design, you could open it in an STL editor (eg 3D Builder in W10) a...

Re: Model is damaged after prepare to print

Those symptoms often indicate that the element is too small. Try playing with the Thin Wall Behaviour in the Advanced tab.

Re: App crashing when using multiple processes

One mistake I've made in the past is to leave the support angle blank. The software will allow you to do this and it crashes. Although if both processes work discretely, then it's probably not this.

Re: How do I make this part stronger?

What I have done in a similar situation is twofold 1) Modify the model to fillet the interface between the perpendicular faces. That is make it a gentle curve rather than a sharp angle 2) In S3D use separate processes to make the interface 100% infill If you look at the pins on my design below, you'...

Re: Material Usage Display

You'd want it to allow for mixed costs per Tool. When printing with different material types, for instance.

Re: Phantom curve mark on print

I would guess, that this is a twin extruder with the unused nozzle hitting the arc there where it is kind of uneven at the overhangs.... I agree. I suspect that the right edge of the curve lifts slightly as it's being formed and the other extruder catches on it, causing the "live" one to ring sligh...
