    Are you trying to load it in Cube Print software?

    If so, that won't work. You have to put it on a USB flash drive and plug it in the printer.

    Hey folks, just re-read through the whole thread...

    Now that I have my cube printing at 70um, I would like to address printing supports.

    I am still using the cube slicer, as my brief experiment with S3D and 70um did not produce the same quality of print, but its supports are hard to remove.

    A few questions:

    #1. It seems that using MeshMixer to create supports, rather than using Cube Print to generate them, might be the most immediate way to get better supports yet maintain quality at 70um?

    #2. Thanks to Mythandar that he has provided a working S3D profile, as far as I can tell testing at 200um. Has there been any comparison of results using 70um?

    #3. IMHO printing with well placed support (if needed, especially S3D supports..) should be sufficient most of the time. Has anyone tried multi-material (PVA) with S3D?

    Huge thanks to Mythandar, TommyDee and MegaloDon + other forum members for their awesome contributions.

    Happy New Year

    JH

    Two alternate solutions to the 3DS support function:
    1) Model the supports in your base geometry model.
    2) Use MeshMixer


    Making your own support requires about .008"-.010" z-gap if you want to break it away easily.

    MeshMixer has shown some strange behaviors. I have still not come up with a universal profile for what we need.
    However, making supports from scratch in MM does seem to work pretty well.
    The latest version seems to be more stable than several of the recent releases.

    You have way more patience than I do printing at 70um.

    Thanks TD, I have the image that you posted of your MM settings on my desktop, thank you!

    It seems to me a universal profile might be hard to achieve. Maybe a few different profile that are best suited to different forms could be created? I will hopefully get more time in the next week or so to try that out on popular subjects such as humanoid biped, quadruped, articulated, skeletons, jet engine, Eiffel Tower....?


    I found these support settings for MeshMixer on reddit....might help someone out...
