That’s why I always make a note of the really helpful websites with great information – and Simplify3D’s trouble shooting guide is one of them.

It is focused around their (also awesome) Simplify3D slicing software but most the the information can be adapted to different slicers.

  • Clicking on the defect photo takes you through to a clear problem description followed up by common fixes.
