Problems

RE: Problems
I have a feeling some of this is more related to how each program is handling stls that aren't perfect solids. Most of Sho's stls are not perfect solids from what I can tell. Because Sketchup is a "surface" modelling tool is very difficult to keep things "solid" and good strong slices require this and its confusing for the slicers when they reach reversed faces internally etc etc in the model.

I am thinking the other factor is extrusion diameter and part dimensions where the slicer has to figure out how to match them up and they have different algorithms.

I am happy you posted these results because it is interesting how each program is handling them and is really helpful for others.

I am having a similar issue I think on the micropede cranks where makerware is not fusing each cylinder shape were they meet how you would expect a solid to be sliced. So what happens is they snap really easily.
