Having failed to print a part (big sections of walls missing, supports build but with nothing on them, I thought I would try the “One Click Print” magic wand tool.
Have ing allowed the program to automatically orient the part, which seems to take a bit of time whilst it ponders the best option, and build the associated supports, I sent to print.
Yet another failure, even with brand new tank and cartridge. Again, big sections of the part missing.
I thought I would just compare what I had created manually with the “One Click Print” file, then realised I hadn’t saved the “one click” version before printing, no problem I thought, I’ll simply reload the STL and select the “one click” again.
But PreForm generates a totally different orientation. And again!
and not subtle differences, so from this way up…
So, what is PreForm doing if every part has multiple “optimum” calculated orientations?
I could sort of understand if I was printing a dice, that many orientations would be similarly “optimal”, but I’m not.
