Which to me, is the frustrating part because you come to the point where you just want the damn thing to just work...
I know your pain, really :D

And while I do like the Sailfish firmware it's not really helping in getting "things to work" when you suddenly realize you need to change some settings in the firmware. Just to find out you need a certain version of replicator_g to do this. Or using gpx to get those darn x3g files... :lol:

Or more common troubles with replicator-style clones. Like the heated bed slowly expanding/contracting which gives you different z offsets at 50° or 70° - just when you thought you finally had the perfect first layer.... :mrgreen:

One last change before you print!!!!!

Go to the Mesh dropdown menu and select Separate Connected Surfaces. That will split the two meshes in the stl out into separate files....and the model should print perfect!!
