We are currently printing with simplify 3d with a large extruder.
We are able to print up to 1400mm tall and 2200mm x 1000mm at 10000mm/s
Simplify works great and all the figures are adjustable to our scale.
1. Point filtering
Our main problem is that on tight radius the points are extremely close together and we are not able to feed all the points to the robot. We then get pauses and a massive build up of material.
Is it possible to filter out these points? Perhaps average points per mm may work along with maximum points per x distance.
We have been required to model all our files with hard corners and are not able to use fillets.
This could also reduce file size and allow for larger prints
2. Corner and straight line speed variation,
On long runs we get a good amount of material whilst on corners the material wants to pull back in due to the rubbery nature of ABS.
Solid infill at layer 200
I have noticed is that when we get to layer 200 it forces a solid layer of infill when not in spiral vase mode even with solid infill unchecked.
A Weave option,
not too high on the list but we have had some great effects on models that we have printed. Perhaps oscillation of feed rate +-x% per x second would give a great weave appearance.
We are also working on modelling with expansion joints to remedy shrinkage.
