Two prints merged/sliced into one?

Post by omnivorous » Thu Apr 14, 2016 2:57 pm

Hello,

New user of the Makergear M2 e version. Simplify3d 3.0 software.

My current print is a combination of two different prints. Any clues on how this happened? It seems like the slicer has combined both objects in the print que? The M2 is happily churning it out.

The two objects were the terminator 800 head and a winged round guy with feet. I printed the terminator head first, then went for the winged round guy. Got both merged into one.

Thanks

Oh yeah, if you didn't delete the terminator head from the bed before loading the winged round guy, S3D still sees it and bundles it right in there.

Checking the little boxes doesn't seem to do anything either. Just delete the terminator from the starting page. (Click on it to select it then delete.)

That's likely it. Thanks for the quick reply, Jules!

I did not delete the first terminator. I just unchecked that box and checked the winged round guy box.

Why is this pic sideways on my IE Windows ten browser and correctly vertical on my IPhone browser?

The winged guys wings are extending out both sides of the terminators neck. The winged guys stubby feet are sticking out of his ear. Printing the whole thing to see what the top looks like. I'll post a finished pic.

Looks like the tip of the wings needed support as did the bottom of the stubby feet.

Holy cow - that's kind of a big print to just let run as an experiment - that must have taken hours. :shock:

22 hours. Looks cool.

It's like that scene in terminator two when the liquid metal terminator gets tossed in the molten metal pool.
