Re: Thin walls, stop infill?

It's too thin. If there are 3 shells, then the thicknesss should be 3*2*0.4mm=2.4mm. You can try Allow Filling Gaps Using Single Extrusion Filling. https://support.raise3d.com/ideaMaker/5-1-3-12-other-15-501.html Thanks, but I don't understand. I need a 1.2mm thick wall and assumed a "shell&qu...

Thin walls, stop infill?

Hi, Pic attached. This shows a vertical tube of 1.2mm wall thickness. The "Shells" are set to 3.00 and I assumed it would just do 3-walls total but it is doing 1-wall each side and then wasting a lot of time with infill. Is there a setting to force this to print all walls for something lik...

Re: [3.6.1] Speed not changing after "Duplicate"

Thanks for the reply, I assume you meant ".data," is there a Linux program that will unpack those files so I can see what I am sending? I do not like posting my files to an open forum if I cannot **first** read the contents in clear text.

Re: [3.6.1] Speed not changing after "Duplicate"

Thanks, but I want to to slow-down. The original Template had all speeds at 100mm/s I duplicated and changed all speeds to 30mm/s I sliced and printed and it ran at the original 100mm/s I showed the GCode where it still has Travel set at "F6000" = 100mm/s The GCode shows the print speed to...

[3.6.1] Speed not changing after "Duplicate"

Hi, I have a Template that had all speeds on the "Speed" tab set to 100mm/s I Duplicated and changed all speeds 30mm/s (pic) but the generated GCode still shows the 100mm/s in some places and never uses the 30mm/s anywhere but what looks like a calculated speed (F3012 = 50.2mm/s). Yes, I s...

Re: Move a Profile or Template?

Thanks, but I Exported them to local disk, deleted them from PLA-filament section, then imported them into the PETG-filament section. A bit of work for me, but you really should have a button that does exactly that. On the topic of "buttons," there should also be a "Rename" butto...

Move a Profile or Template?

Hi, I never bothered to use the "Primary Extruder" Filter and now I have multiple Templates for different Filaments. I'd like to move the ones for PETG off to the "Primary Extruder" definition for PETG. When I started using IM, I had not realized these were handled like this. I'd...

We can't recreate the same issue you mentioned above. Hi, I have finally managed to repeat this on demand. With a small white dialog open like "Estimated Print Result" (or any other temporary Dialog on top of the Main Form) and I change to another Workspace, I get the problem. When I come...

Weird angle to sit flat?

Hi All, I have a model with a weird angle (19.44307 degrees) and I need to print from that plane. I have used Rotate to get it close but no way to get it to sit flat on the bed. Even defining the angle 19.44307 does not help. It looks OK but when I slice and Preview, it is either just above the bed ...

Re: 642-edges, 566 Non-manifold -- Ooops

You will still be able to slice with Non-manifold surface existing. ideaMaker will try to repair before slicing. You can check Preview after slicing to double confirm the result. Nope, it would not slice. Clicked the button and nothing but the yellow triangle and "!". I had already tried ...

Thanks for the file, I will check it out. Not having been here for a year or more, I am not privy to the STL-issues you allude to. But, I'd rather understand the issue as I am sure this is not an isolated instance. In fact I saw the Non-Manifold thing with another .obj file yesterday and was then ca...

642-edges, 566 Non-manifold -- Ooops

Hi All , ETA: IM-3.6.1 I have hit a roadblock with the World's best Slicer. Pretty sure that this is actually manifold. Cura and PS seem to think so. I suspect it is the holes with chamfers on the curved faces as "Repair," fills them in. Is there any way I can slice this in IM? hold.jpg ho...

Just adding to this, I tried using the old Windows 98se (my last windows PC) method of Alt + F4 to close a window. That worked and it all returned to normal and worked fine again.

First off, let me say, this version is awesome. I have tried IM a few times over the past few years and always had to struggle a little with it. I just sliced and printed a 3" Firehose adapter with a standard 8-tpi thread on it and it came out like it had been injection molded. Please thank you...

Hi, I may not be seeing a menu item, but I can't find any way to edit the Profiles without a part loaded. I was just watching a part print and thought, "I must change that for next time." I went into IM but could not seem to find the Profile-Edit option without first loading a model. Not a...
