Simplify3D Version 4 – Improved Sequential Printing & Drag n Drop Reordering

The third video in my series on the changes in Version 4 of Simplify3D runs through the added functionality to use multiple processes on multiple parts when printing them one after the other, sequentially.

This feature will greatly assist those that sequentially print multiple parts that need their own individual split processes.

I also show the new feature in Version 4 which allows you to simply drag and drop the order in which the split processes are printed. If you got this wrong in previous versions it meant having to delete them all, starting again and creating them in a certain order. This too is a great time saver.

Simplify3D Version 4 – What’s New, Part 2 – Seamless Process Transition

In this second video covering the updates included with version 4 of Simplify3D; I take a look at the new feature called “Seamless Process Transitions”.  (First part of this video series can be found here)

This features aims to remove any artifacts, or Z scars, from a print at the point of transition between two processes.

Before version 4 Simplify3D would insert solid layers between two different print settings in the same print, which could be visible in the resulting part.

I have a look at the theory and print out some tests in both version 3 and 4 to see what improvements are seen.

I had quite a fun time trying to get any differences to show up in photographs even though I used quite a high quality macro lens, nevertheless the photographs showing the difference between version 3 & 4 are below.
