Created this as a visual aid for newcomers to 3D printing.
Update - Universal GCODES - USE AT OWN RISK:
User jpelc has generously provided 'universal gcodes' that will theoretically print on any printer but this hasn't been tested yet. If you're interested in testing these out, please message me and I can send you the gcodes. They're available at 100%, 75% and 50% scale.
--On Simplify3D > 'Separate Connected Surfaces' and create a separate process for each corresponding section
--You should be able to use the latest Slic3r to achieve the same results. Once you load the STL into Slic3r, you'll want to first split the parts. Then, you'll be able to select each individual piece, right click > Settings and assign different settings to them by pressing the plus sign.
--I'm still working out whether it's possible to do the same in Cura. I don't think so yet.
--For the Layer Height, I first printed with 1 shell but it turned out better/stronger with 2 shells. The first try had some stringing, but adjusting the start points to the back of the print seemed to resolve that.
--For Bridging, I slowed the speed down to 90% and set extrusion width to 90%. May have printed even better with a slightly slower speed/lower width.
