Does anyone have useable profiles for Simplify3D, for 25, 50 and 100 micron layers? I’m getting so tired of the steaming pile of shit that is Cura.
I’ve spent ~8 hours over the last two evenings just trying to get Cura to slice a ~315MB stl file and get a layer preview. It eats around 7GB of RAM just to slice at 25um, before trying to preview layers, and then after a dozen attempts at reducing my model complexity and reslicing, I finally got it to not crash trying to do a layer preview… but then it didn’t actually offer the layer slider, even though it had eaten over 11GB of RAM.
I’ve tried the older Cura 2.6.2 and the newer version 3.2.8.
It takes 15 minutes per attempt, only to crash at 70-80% progress. It’s not a mickey mouse computer - i5 3570K, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, GTX 760 2GB.
S3D will slice in a fraction of the time and at only just over 3GB of RAM at 70um extrusion width and 25um layer height.
I bought S3D because I hated Cura when using my FDM printer, so it kinda sucks having to go back to it for the Moai even for simpler prints, but I stuck with it because it would get there eventually for small stuff, but it’s just not even useable for larger prints.
I’ve previously tried every S3D profile I could find on the forums but none of them ever really worked. Doesn’t seem to be anything posted more recently.
I don’t get much free play time outside of working 60-70 hours a week, so I’d rather not spend the next 3 weeks and half a litre of resin experimenting with S3D settings (although if that’s what it takes then so be it) so if anyone has some good working profiles, I would SUPER appreciate it!
