I'm thinking about purchasing Simplify3D for my Robo R1 plus

Tue Jun 11, 2019 9:26 pm

So I'm thinking about purchasing Simplify3D for my Robo R1 plus. What sort of issues am I going to have getting my printer up and running. MatterControl has been doing the trick for me but there seems to be very little help for it. It has been plug and print since day one.

I prefer S3D over mattercontrol any day. The interface in S3D feels nicer and cleaner. I also feel the slicing is much better than in mattercontrol. S3D has your printer in their database, so it should be plug and play with little tuning from the settings. I’ve never had a robo, but I know every printer I’ve used with S3D hasn't had issues. I say go for it. You will notice S3D is SUPER slow with updates, but their software just works and are supposedly coming out with 5.0 shortly(maybe).
