This is where we will post when there are updates to the SimplyColor3D interface and supporting slicer.

For anyone who has already tried SimplyColor3D,
There is an update to the settings files. There was a mistake where the purge gcode section closing title said 'begin' instead of 'end'. This caused it to be omitted from the final gcode output and no purges would be included. This is fixed and new settings.ini template files are available to download from the google drive.
 
There is an update to the slicing engine as well. Now all perimeters are drawn in the same clockwise direction, instead of clockwise-counterclockwise. And the Z moves are now located closest to the rear of the model instead of the front. This should improve the printed output.
 
There also may be a bug which is causing the slicing queue to hang. If you don't get your gcode emailed to you within 5 minutes then please email us: info@bigbrain3d.com and send the obj/png/setting files. We will attempt to reproduce the issue and address the bug. In the mean time we are trying to locate it ourselves but any help is appreciated.

The slicer queue was offline while we looked into the issue.

It is now back online. We've fixed the issue.

The issue was that sometime a slicer would error out and hold a core indefinitely.

Errors now get released properly and an email will be sent to the user letting them know of the error.

SimplyColor3D application is currently down. We are working on the issue. It seems that Siteground, our hosting provider, installed a wordpress update automatically that caused the issue. We are working on this. Hopefully it will be back up today.

SimplyColor3D is back up. The WP Rocket wordpress caching plugin was changing the code and breaking it. The plugin only started doing this after it's last update. The issue has now been fixed and documented.
