I switched from the Wanhao Version of Cura to Simplify3d because everyone is saying it's so awesome. Although I see that it potentially could be great given the myriad of options it provides I have troubles configuring it right for my Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus. For one I had to adjust the Z-Axis and move the extruder closer to the bed because it wouldn't print anything.
Once I fixed this I could print a small part (30x30x8mm) which I intended to print with 100% fill. It printed out fine but I fear that if I continue to slice with S3D it will destroy my printer, because the printer was constantly stuttering during the whole print. I am actually not sure if it was the hotbead making micro-movements back and forth or if it was on the X or Z axis, but there was a constant erratic trtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtr sound during the print, pretty annoying noise and it made me fear for the health of the printer. Any idea what might cause this? I never experienced this with Cura. When I chose 100% infill it would print straight lines very smoothly, no stuttering.
I did change some settings, added some G-Code to pre-extrude and tried to mimic the settings I used in Cura but nothing I would suspect to cause this erratic stutter. I've attached my FFF file to this post and hope someone can point me in the right direction. I was printing HDGlass (sort of PETG with lower temps) in high quality.
