35 years in the Manufacturing industry making (for the most part) Medical Implants and Instrumentation. It does help with the transition, but "adding material" and "removing material" are two different beasts. My next quest ... getting the proper S3D parameters for those parts with "bridging".

You will find a great deal of information on the internet regarding bridging, most of it contradictory. Bridge faster? Slower?

I've settled on a very slow bridging speed, 20 mm/s with 80% bridging extrusion multiplier works for me. If you do run some actual tests and come up with something better, I would love to know.

No waste, no swarf! Well, unless you count support material.
