Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

No 3D printed battle axe? (Or other props) Sounds like fun!

Re: Changing Layer Height is a Single Print

This feature exists in simplify3d, off the top of my head I think it's called sparse infill. You set the layer height, and then the infill will be printed say every 3 layers or so, at 3 times the layer height. You can choose how much this should be of course.

There's something wrong with your link, I get a message that the file does not exist.

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

You can edit .stl's directly using MeshMixer, but it's more of a sculpting tool than e.g. fusion's parametric design. If you only need to change the looks Meshmixer can do the job but if you require some exact measurements then you're probably better off making them yourself.

Re: Slicer behavior in solid objects

I've been surprised by that before too. Apparently S3D treats infill differently even if you set it to 100%. Sometimes it seems weird. On the other hand, you can print solid objects where the infill has higher layer height than the perimeters. Might have be useful in some cases.

Edit: spelling :-?

Re: Slicer behavior in solid objects

I think it has something to do with top/bottom solid layers. If you set them to 0 but use 100% infill that should do the trick I think.

Re: Cura 2.6 Beta!

I switched to S3D because I just couldn't get cura to print my minis correctly. Sometimes the supports would be different for exactly the same model while printing multiple at once. In S3D you still need to experiment to get the settings just right, but being able to manually choose where to place ...

Re: Coast at End

Say what... That might explain why I've been getting terrible blobs in some prints after retractions. :-o


Edit: Are you sure it extrudes extra filament when unretracting to compensate for coasting? Not according to this post on the s3d forum (bottom of the first post).

Why the separation for the skirt? Doesn't that defeat the purpose?
