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: Original Prusa i3 MK2 review

Cool! Curious to see your results. I wonder if the Bowden performs comparably to the direct drive...

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?

Re: Gaps in mid-layer

At what temperature are you printing? When I had issues like this it turned out I had set it way too low for the speed I was printing at.

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

I don't think we've ever had more than 15 cm of snow here... And even then it's a mess. Public transport basically shuts down, people suddenly forget how to drive, etc.
