dear FDM users,

i am joseph sim from IST...the FDM vendor in Singapore.

i will try to veify my diagnosis with the Stratasys experts....but we have
never come across this problem(layer do not fuse together) before. the
only time we see that the "layers do not fuse" is when there are not enough
supports created in the required regions. if they are using QuickSlice
minimal support building option this could be a problem.

what i can suggest is to use maximum or optimal support building option
rather than minimal.
