Re: What Simplify3D setting is causing this effect?

mmm, good detective work, I will have a look when I am home again.

Weird thing is

Prusa forum profile: 0.2 - shows the strange effect
S3D prusa profile: 0.2 - shows it perfectly
S3D prusa profile: 0.1 - shows the strange effect


I can also post the Prusa forum profile factory file

Re: What Simplify3D setting is causing this effect?

Thanks

I created 2 factory files (handy, still learning about S3D)
https://www.dropbox.com/s/fe08qege9xy8j ... s.zip?dl=0

I noticed something else, even with the default prusa S3D profile I get this effect between high and medium layer resolution. I included these 2 files.

Re: What Simplify3D setting is causing this effect?

thanks for willing to take a look. I feel kind of hesitant sharing the profiles, I know it takes more work from you as a user to look at them and I don't have a lot to give back (experience wise) at the moment. Still in the learning phase :)

Re: What Simplify3D setting is causing this effect?

mm, I checked, both are 0.20 mm layer height. No degree tilting unfortunately, same model, all I do is slice it with a different S3D profile.

I will also ask on the S3D forum and report back here

Re: What Simplify3D setting is causing this effect?

thank you for the reply. To my knowledge it model is flat, but you never know when getting something from thingiverse. It looks pretty flat though https://thingiverse-production-new.s3.amazonaws.com/renders/76/f1/bf/91/cb/0c388acd1a3aa3d686b2543e7e986d71_preview_featured.jpg Both are sliced with the...

What Simplify3D setting is causing this effect?

I have 2 Prusa mk2s profiles, one that comes from Simplify3D and the other coming from a user from the Prusa forum. I printed an object only to notice the pattern difference on the top layer. This difference is also seen in the preview screen within S3D. I tried to compare the 2 different profiles b...

Re: 3d Benchy, rough bow, but why...

Looks much better. Your first layer is a bit too high though; you want those lines merging. Thanks, and perhaps I can tweak the live Z value a little more. I did a couple of test prints though, on the prusa forum there is a nice thread about this. This height gave me the best results, where the thi...

Re: 3d Benchy, rough bow, but why...

Yes, I managed to get a good print using the gray filament without roughtness - default S3D prusa profile - temp 190 deg c - Outline Underspeed: 10% (default printing speed = 40mm/s) https://www.dropbox.com/s/ixaazf26d0swo3v/IMG-20170916-WA0009.jpeg?raw=1 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ixaazf26d0swo3v/IM...

Re: 3d Benchy, rough bow, but why...

I did some more test prints Tried to reorient the print on the plate, made a little difference, facing back had the best results Tried lowering the temp to 190 deg C, didn't really make a difference, strangely 220 deg C had better results Print using 0.20 layer and changing the starting point of the...

Re: 3d Benchy, rough bow, but why...

Those are some good tips, thank you. I never thought of orienting my print on the bed, going to try that as soon as I get home.
