I tried that but the print was unusable. On the bottom layer all the traces were spaced out by more than the trace width, and every trace lifted up around the sharp corners so that when the head comes around it dislodges the bottom layer. On Cura the bottom layer traces are almost solid next to each other and sticks every time.
But the estimation numbers are also way nonsensical:
The Cura estimate for my print is close to 5 hours with 197 layers, using 109gm. I know the Cura numbers are accurate - I've printed this out 9 times so far without problem and the final part weighs +- 110gm.
The Simplify 3D print estimate is 2 hours 55 minutes hours with 198 layers, using 117gm??
I don't know how Simplify 3D is planning to pull of that < 3 hour print, but whatever it's trying to do is not working well... I'm just trying to match my Cura settings to start off with.
Cura LHS vs. Simplify 3D RHS:
Nozzle Size: 0.5mm vs. 0.5mm
Layer Height: 0.38 vs. 0.3800mm
Shell thickness: 3mm vs. 9 layers
Bottom/Top thickness: 2mm vs. 6 layers+6 layers
Fill density: 40% vs. 40%
First layer width: 125% vs. 125%
Travel speed: 175mm/s vs. 4800mm/m (80mm/s)
Outer shell speed: 30mm/s vs. 50% of 3600mm/m = 30mm/s
All things being equal (more material, slower print speed, slower travel times), Simplify3D should print SLOWER than Cura, but for some reason it thinks it can print this 42% faster. Since it can't even finish the bottom layer, I can't verify this claim, but it's not looking good.
