Re: Set Prime Pillar distance

I just started printing TPU and ran into this issue . If it were just hairline strings I could just break them off, but I get thicker strings than that between the body and the prime pillar. I guess I'll have to use a spacer object.

Idle extruder initial temperature

Is there any way in Simplify3D when using both extruders to stop the initially idle extruder from heating up to full temperature before dropping back to idle temperature? I have a print with two processes, one for each extruder, where the second extruder doesn't even start extruding until the second...

Re: Change number format to decimal place instead of comma

What happens if you change your location setting to US? It may be based on location and not language.

Re: Toplayer extrusion width control

The brute force way of doing this is to use the Multiple Settings Wizard and define the transition plane to be exactly between the top two layers. It would require some computation outside of S3D based on initial layer height and other layer height to figure out what that Z position is.

Custom grid

Please add the ability to define custom grids for the work area. It's more than just cosmetic: It would be a great help for those of us with multiple heating zones on our printer beds. My Snapmaker Artisan's bed has a central heater and a peripheral heater; the central heater warms up much faster an...

Re: observation; We need more positive posts here

If there's no negativity, there's no criticality and, therefore, no feedback as to the features that are missing or buggy. If everything is positive, companies have no incentive to address issues.

Re: Strange missing partial layer when sliced

Positive Fill was already set for that model. However, I tried it with Alternating Fill and that cleared it up. I'fve since modified the model to be taller and it slices fine with Positive Fill. What does Merge All Boundaries (the third option for that setting) do?

Re: Painting Supports

I don't know how those slicers work with supports, but you can paint supports after a fashion in v5. Just select this icon and paint away:

Re: GCode Script Macro's

I believe the latest V5.1.2 release added process name as an available macro. Try using the following: [current_process_name] And this is documented where (other than in this topic)? Sorry to beat a dead horse, but you really need to invest some of that expensive license money to develop documentat...
