Re: S3D usb vs SD printing

I always use the SD card after having multiple crashed prints caused by Windows doing something to USB in the background. It may depend on your printer, but if ANYTHING tickles the USB for any reason, my printer (MakerGear M2E) throws a fit. I have a USB connection to control the printer for things ...

Re: ''Choose start point closest to specific location'' problem

I'm using the latest version, and I use this feature quite a bit. At least with regular 3D models & printing, it's always behaved as expected for me.

Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

I'm not convinced they are dead, just unbelievably poorly managed, at least from a customer communications standpoint. If you check out their blog, they apparently work with printer companies to provide custom slicers. I suspect they actually get quite a bit of income from that.

Re: Do you need beta testers for version 5?

I looked for it a while back and couldn't find the post, but I think this came up a while ago. They said they didn't need any (more?) beta testers.

Re: different speed at layers

I have a print job I'm doing now where this would have been very useful. I was wondering if they might add it to the (fictitious?) Ver. 5...

Re: Still in business?

The last time we heard anything official was December 19th last year. Except is was just an official "we're working on Version 5", with no concrete info on a release date or features. People appear to be abandoning the product, based on the slow decline in postings here. I certainly could have learn...

Re: CR-10 stock with .8 nozzle

Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

The S3D people are clearly under strict orders not to say ANYTHING concrete or substantive about Version 5. This is clearly coming from the top brass, who have NO clue about customer relations. I find it hard to believe that they are still making much money selling Version 4. Anyone who does the lea...
