    I modeled and printed Ninjaflex isolators that go between the motor and frame and washers that go under the bolt heads.

    No Clif, with S3d you slice on the pc and upload to octoprint and print. If you want to try a new slicer try the Prusa slicer which is slic3r under full development by Prusa and is free. I still...

    S3D is the slicer Simplified 3D and I would not suggest buying it.. the current version is full of bugs and the results would be similar.
    Try printing more than one or the same design at once so the...

    Yes that's right. Sorry supports will get you a part, but not a nice neat clean part.
