Re: Buildtak

Re: Need some help understanding this print problem

Johnsays, Jump back to S3D support page and see if this is not a possible correction to the problem you are experiencing. You are right about the layer size and bonding... From S3D: Layer Separation and Splitting 3D printing works by building the object one layer at a time. Each successive layer is ...
