    So i spent the money for simpify3d and i love it, but my biggest problem with the program is its print time estimates. Ok its not that big of a problem but its really a pain when you have no clue how long it will take to print something. I have literally had some larger prints go as much as 50% over the estimate smaller prints 20%. I am looking to see if any of you that use Simplify are having the same problem and if you have a fix.

    No fix, nature of the beast. There are factors involving your printer that S3D and any other slicer simply can't or won't model. It mainly has to do with the fact that no printer can change direction of the hotend instantaneously and has to accelerate and decelerate for every change in direction no matter how minute.
