    I finally bit the bullet and bought Simplify3D. I'm already enjoying what I can do with it. But I haven't been able to figure out how to do something that seems like it should be pretty simple: manually move the extruder where I want it. With Matter Control, you could move the extruder in the X, Y, or Z, by .2, 1, 10, 100 mm. Where do I go to do that in S3D?

    The gear icon on the right (second from bottom) will bring this up:

    You might want to use their online tutorials ....

    I say that because it is not like the other printer front-ends

    Thanks Mark! I've looked at a lot of videos, but hadn't seen this one yet. I'm really excited about being able to do multiple processes on different parts of a model. And the great supports!

    You can do really powerful stuff. With Vase mode use multiple islands (across one or more models), etc.
    It is a powerful tool.
