Re: how to flatten the top of a model

That's a design issue. You should go back into your design app and fix it there.

However, you can fix it in S3D by going to the Advanced tab in the process window and specifying a "stop at height" value (and checking the checkbox). Leave the "start at height" checkbox unchecked.

Re: Easiest 3D modeling software?

- Fusion 360 - I recently started using Fusion, it's bit counter intuitive for solidworks/onshape/creo users but on the other hand very similar, it is parametric but also have a mesh editing too so should be easier for organic stuff (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRMzg2X_sX0 ). There's also ...

Re: Easiest 3D modeling software?

I come from an engineering background (electrical) and of the software I've tried (Blender, TinkerCAD, FreeCAD, Fusion 360), I've liked Fusion 360 the best. There's a bit of a learning curve, but once you get the gist of how Fusion 360 operates, modelling is pretty quick and easy, for me at least. B...

Re: How to edit models

Just double-click on the model. It'll bring up a side panel with movement and rotation controls.

Re: Different file icons

That may help the OP, but I'm not sure it would work for me on my Mac.

Re: How to successfully pause 3D printing and turn off

You have to be careful with #1 too. The second process should have no commands in the Start script except possibly temperature setting commands. You probably DO NOT want the printer to home before printing the second part because it could cause the nozzle to impact the first part of the printed mode...

Re: Different file icons

Even something as simple as a letter badge in the corner of the icon would be helpful (e.g. "G" for G-code or "F" for factory file).

Re: How to set mixing persentage in Simplify3d?

That will only allow one mix for the entire model. If you want to have three separate mixes depending on layer ranges, then the easiest way is to use the Variable Settings Wizard to define the transition points, which will generate a separate process for each range. Instead of specifying the mix in ...
