I've never uninstalled a release of S3D yet. Consequently, I have every release from v3.0.1 available to run at will.
Pretty much the same. Have gone back to v4.0.1 after find a really cool bug where if I rotated a part 90 degrees in Z and centred the object, it would invert and flip onto the underside of the bed.
v4.0.1 was 'quirky' but sound if you avoided those quirks.
I am finding that my personal risk exposure to print failures when slicing large complex objects with v4.1.0 are too high to face anymore. I've had surfaces go missing, bridging not working at all when extended to perimeters, and something I've never had before - infill poking through the perimeters.
These are often not spotted until halfway into something like a 40 hour print...
For giggles on 4.0.1, you could make supports project through the outside of curved objects with supports inside if you upped the support Extra Inflation Distance to something silly, but missing perimeters and poke-through - never.
I feel sorry for those who do not have access to v4.0.1.
I am also pretty certain that it will not be relisted as that would be an admission that the all is not well in the land of Simplify3D development.
Fingers-crossed for v4.1.1.
Going to stick with the devil I know for the time being though.
