If S3D increased their resolution: parts would print faster, be more accurate, look a lot nicer, and would be easier on your printer, mechanically. "
Please improve the resolution at which the GCODE is exported. Due to the rough nature of S3D GCODE, parts print slower and rougher as opposed to using cura and ideamaker. If identical items were sliced with same speeds and comparable settings with cura, you’ll notice that S3D will finish last. This is because of how jerk handles the little segments of GCODE(S3D are bigger, Cura's are smaller and more precise). If jerk is turned up on the S3D print, it would be right up there with Cura in print time but would alter print quality (probably worse) since you’re running a jerk setting above what you normally use and what could be unsafe for your printer. I’ve done many tests to prove this and have a few images that clearly show the resolution S3D has versus others.
Cura by far has the nicest GCODE I've seen.
Test it yourself. I've successfully proven it on a makergear and ultimaker.
Image order: Cura, S3D, Ideamaker
As you can see, S3D's gcode segments are quite larger than Cura's and Ideamaker, therefor reducing quality. A circle is never a circle. A circle is composed of many little segments. The more segments you have, the higher the resolution.
