The attached factory file was used to print the part in the attached image. Please load and print without changing anything and see if you gaps are gone. I would consider this part perfectly acceptable, this is FFF and it is far from perfect. The more we try and make it so the more issues we create. The makergear printers are very accurate they don't need a lot of software tweaks to do good work..
We have a winner! Thank you Airscapes! I really appreciate the time you took to help out with this.
I just fished the print off the printer, and the gaps are gone! Here's the top side:
And here's the bottom, showing a clean start to the 2nd & third perimeters.
Despite all sorts of changes, the only minor "quality" issue I noticed is some "ghosting" of the internal voids that wasn't present with my settings:
This has Airscapes' version on top of one of mine. The depressed region is pretty small (small enough it's hard to photograph), and for the project at hand, it won't be an issue.
I want to go through the gapless process and see if I can identify the culprit(s) in mine. I've used pretty much these settings on a bunch of projects with good results, and at first glance, the process I used shouldn't break anything like this.
The good news is that I won't have to wait for S3D to fix anything, and I can avoid PrusaSlicer a bit longer...
I'll report back if I identify exactly what parameter(s) made the difference. I suspect it will be only one or two, and with luck, I can have no gaps and
