The plate was processed by another source. I cleaned off the layers of hairspray and examined the plate more closely. Actually, it is not as bad as originally thought. I will fine tune the adjustments, and see what happens. Thanks for the help.

Re: How to print objects that don't have a flat side?

Thanks for the help. Can Simplify 3D split an object in half/multiple parts or is another piece of software required to accomplish this?

G code automatic shutoff

I utilize Simplify 3D, and would like when the M2 is done running its prints for the night to automatically shut off. Maybe that is asking to much. However, is there a G code or something software related that could accomplish this?
