Simplify 3D upgrade!? Woot!
With the news that Simplify 3D finally is getting an update (official!), what would you most like to see?
If you didn’t already see, Joel has been given early access and likes what he sees. Simplify 3D came back to say everyone would get the update, and it will be free – good news!
It will be a free upgrade to existing users, and even if you purchased now, you will also receive the upgrade as soon as it’s available!

So which new features would you like to see? Here’s my wish list …
- Automatic, variable layer heights – You can do this manually, but Prusa Slic3r can do this dynamically, saving time and improving print quality.
- Automatic, variable infill density – Cura can do this, would be great to have this ability in S3D – cut down print time and support just where surfaces need it.
- Choose support anywhere, rather than just from the base – You can place support but would be great to be able to choose a short branching piece of support from, say, another feature (like in Meshmixer)
- More accurate time estimates – OK might be dreaming on that one!
I would also love for them to come up with a creative solution to the start/end point z-zipper effect beyond just playing with coasting and retraction or telling the slicer to align them.
What do you want to see?
