Re: Finite Element Analysis and Simplify3D

I have a fairly good amount of experience with FEA, but not of FFF printed parts. I suspect that you'll have a hell of a time getting accurate results with all the various factors in play on printed parts that aren't 100% filled. Getting the constraints and anisotropic properties correct seems like ...

Re: 3D Systems Cube 3rd Generation printer driver

The CubePro works with Simplify3D, but the Cube? Why would anyone willingly buy one now? They're not good, and even at their steeply discounted price (there's a reason no one wants to buy them) there are better options. The 3rd gen Cube has been abandoned by the company that made it, has no third pa...

Re: Offset perimeters with infill for strength?

I've been meaning to write a quick script that would do this. You can use two similar processes to print the same model and interleave them by postprocessing the code to delete every other layer. This is a total messy hack, but you could definitely use this to test the interleaved perimeters (or int...

Re: MODELS SUBJECT TO PRESSURE (35-42PSi) SHRINK

What temperatures are you using with the vacuum machine? I would think that PLA would hold up okay to 40PSI external, but if it's at elevated temperatures (45°C+) then it could well be weakened enough to deform. This would be a good case to look into using HTPLA and annealing or switching to a highe...

Re: Dual Extrusion Octopus Mess!

As usual with the taz, it's an oozy mess. It also looks like your white stopped extruding mid print (I'm going to guess chewed up filament? common on that extruder). It also looks underextruded by a fair bit where it was still printing. Troubleshooting: https://www.simplify3d.com/support/print-quali...

Re: Changing my temp!

There's a newer version of GPX that allows higher bed temperatures, but Simplify3D doesn't ship with it by default. You can replace the GPX file in the Simplify3D application directory with one from here: https://github.com/markwal/GPX/releases Anything after 2.4.2 should allow you to set your bed t...

Re: Printer Head Collides With Frame During Startup

It looks like the print head destination for priming is set in the start script, so make sure you've got the right coordinates for your machine there. I'd also recommend making sure that the home offsets in your printer's firmware match what were originally set up by the factory.

Re: Quality or bad Printer? Please help

That regular ripple that you see is characteristic of a bent/poorly aligned Z axis screw, which would be why you see it on one printer but not the other.

Re: Can someone tell me what happened here?

The original machine had a base plate of pre-famulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings were in a direct line with the panametric fan. The latter consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzlevanes, so fitted to the ambifacient lunar wanes...
