The Flux Delta is new to the market and so is the program, Flux Studio. There are many 3D machines as well as many 3D Software.
First, the most important part of Third Party software is that its not meant for direct print. For it to work properly, you will need to configure the program to meet the FLUX configurations for print and then export the print to a G-Code that FLUX is able to read.
So far, I have been trying different software in order to either learn more about what 3D printing is all about and most importantly, what capabilities or limitations does Flux Delta’s software have.
I am still testing out some software but the one that has stood out to me, was Simplify3D. Although it’s a paid program, you can still try out the 2 week trial version and see for yourself. What stands out for me is being able to understand all that mumble jumble of “what is a raft”, “what is support”, Do i use a skirt or not? What speed? First Layer, how slow? Should I turn the fan off for the first layer?
All questions that I have had to learn and for which the program was able to allow me to understand better. Since then, I have been have HUGE success in adhesion and printing.
The first layer is the most important layer, next to the Raft. Simplify3D and most other 3rd party programs allows you to control almost every single aspect of your printer. You want the resolution of the print to be the highest? You want a draft print but it still takes hours for it to print?
There are so many questions and extremely hard to find answers that make sense for someone that is just starting out.
So, to sum it up, Simplify3D has been an incredible program to have and it’s my recommendation. There are other 3D programs out there that are just as capable, Meshmixer is good but a high learning curve, CURA is good, but I haven’t had the pleasure to use the G-Code from it to give a recommendation.
For me, Simplify3D has been the software to print from.
This is from customer support of Simplify3D “Thank you for contacting the Simplify3D support team! I would be glad to help you with this. I took a look at their software and information, and it appears that we would be able to work with that printer after a fashion. You can import G-Code in their software, so you would generate g-code files from Simplify3D, then import them to the Flux Studio software and run the print from there.”
What has been your experience? What is your favorite slicer?
