Slicing completes with no errors but no slices show up

I just ran across a strange issue. After finishing a normal print, I loaded some new items that I haven't printed before. When I sliced it, the time seemed to estimate correctly and I didn't get any errors, but there's nothing on the "Slice view" screen, and nothing shows up on the project...

Re: Simplify3D

I'm happy to pay $75 for an upgraded version of this software- anyone know when it's supposed to come out? I saw a reference to last November but I haven't seen anything since then about a release date.

Re: First few layer sticks, but the next will detach and peel off

Your title says "first few layers" but your text says only the first layer. Is it literally only one layer, or is it a thin stack of your first few layers?

If the latter, increase the 5 seconds until it starts sticking reliably.

Re: CW3D new features?

So is CW going to be paid only now? I'd be fine paying for the software, as long as it gets regular updates and all :) The price I'd be willing to pay would definitely hinge on the feature set though. I was happy to pay $150 for Simplify3D for my FDM printer, as it seems to have tons of options that...

Best methods to reduce sagging/distortion on planar surfaces?

I have a need to print brackets on a regular basis. By the nature of brackets, they tend to be made out of mostly planar surfaces. When printing the first of a plane using support material, the prints generally seem to sag or move somewhat until they can build up enough stiffness to support themselv...

Re: Difficulty printing holes!

You could try a darker (more light-blocking) color as well. I've had good luck with red, and I think there's a black resin out there that might work well.

Re: Prints coming out mirrored

Ah it's probably in the configure slicing profile part. I know the monitor itself is fine as the mouse cursor moves the correct way. I think it's just an issue with a top-down vs bottom-up switch getting backwards somewhere. I'll see if my slicing profile got wonky somehow- thanks!

Prints coming out mirrored

I can't believe I've just now noticed this, but my prints on my LittleRP are coming out mirrored in X. I've had the thing for nearly a year now, and most of my prints have been fairly symmetrical, so I didn't notice it early on. Basically the prints coming out of the printer are mirror images of wha...

Re: Printing flat surfaces z axis

What orientation are you printing in? If you can change the orientation, you can tell if it's a slicing issue or some other type of Z artifacting.
