I would really like to print this but it confuses Simply3d no end.

What size nozzle did you use and have set in S3D? The single layer sections must be thinner than 0.4mm as the print preview screen does not show them so does not provide any support.

This occurs on both pieces.

Your installed photos prove that it can be done but I am not sure how you did it.

Well I think I have found the answer. In Simplify3d, on the Advanced tab, choose Allow Single Extrusion Walls in External Thin Wall Type and magically the single thickness walls are shown on the Print Preview screen.

It is printing now and so far looks OK with no missing surfaces. I will have to wait and see how it turns out.

Hi Badbaddog,

Yes indeed that setting needs to be active. Thanks for pointing that out.
I hope it turns out great!

Good luck,

Really nice design. Like it a lot.
Is that a 40 or 30 mm fan?

Thank you!
It uses a 40 mm fan.
Tip: When you order one, choose a silent fan and also order one for the hot end as well. Mine was quite loud.
