Want to say thanks for settings, I am getting quite a few zit spots with s3d, so gonna test out your settings.

That being said. After a couple of days of fiddling with the XML file (manually because the software doesn't let you edit all the parameters from the interface) I ended up with a very good printing quality.


Would love to know what you changed that the UI does not allow. Also what your settings would be with a 0.25 nozzle. The fact that you got such perfect prints with a 0.4 nozzle blows me away!! I got a 0.25 nozzle to try and get the quality you currently showing (maybe it is just the photo) but have to get to that quality. What filament are you using?

Thanks again!

I use Prusa PLA filament, but I get similar results with other filaments. So far I've tested 0.40 nozzle only and I'm pretty happy with the result, unfortunately exchanging the nozzle is a bit too complicated to be done frequently... for that reason I'd love a second prusa for ultra detail prints only but the waiting list is now like 3 months, so...

Unfortunately S3D UI doesn't let you fine tune all the parameters per material per nozzle, that's why you have to edit the XML file manually.

Noob here, sorry for the dumb question. Just finished the printer this weekend and it is working like a champ! Just fired up simplify3d for the first time and there is a Prusa Original i3 Mk2 option in the printer list. Is selecting this not that same as using your FFF file?

It's not particularly well setup (the S3D profile)... but then neither are the Prusa profiles.
I can't really get S3D setup at all well with the MK2.
Unless something absolutely requires custom supports I'm favoring Slic3r.

Matt's S3D settings are night and day in difference, and are a good stepping stone for making minor adjustments.

grab it here: https://gist.github.com/cubiq/502e171c6 ... babace829b

report any issue, it's the only way to improve the profile. Please note that each prusa is slightly different and you may still need to tweak some parameters (especially the extrusion multiplier)

Thank you!
I will try these settings.
I bougt Simplify3D and was a bit dissapointed about the prints beeing slower AND worse than prints with slic3r prusa edition.
I mean how can you charge 150$ and there is only a mediocre printer preset for a great printer?
If prints come out at least in the same quality then Simplify is worth the money.

Hi,

I am working on my S3D profile for half a year. And now it is giving me perfect results. At least for my standard prints (PLA, 0.2 layer height)

If someone wants to try printing it without Simplfy3D i have the gcode in the ZIP-File.


Here is a zip-file with the profile and gcodes inside:

I updated my Make on thingiverse:

And some images to compare (they are in high resolution - save them to get a closer look):
