A fitting end to the week.
Remember a week or two back when I got all pissy about downloading some STL
software that made my machine crap out?
Oh .. I'm sorry . . I mean . . I mistakenly didn't have the most recent Open
GL drivers, which the STL software required, and because I didn't have them,
my computer crashed.
Yeah well anyway . . . so as I'm reinstalling everything, I plunked in the
software for the SLS build setup application. (DTM / 3D systems)
Apparently I never installed the last copy that was sent to me and was

I've got some parts with fine text on them . . and for the Z layers that the
text is on, I want to change the offset settings to make sure the text will
come out. The rest of the part I NEED to use the correct settings for
accuracy and fit reasons.
So as I go to start setting different fill and outline offset values for
different Z height . . I can't find how to do it anymore.

If so ..that SUCKS!
If not .. someone please clue me in as to what I'm missing.
I don't particularly want to uninstall this version just to install an older
version . . .
Especially this late in the day on Friday.
I think this sort of thing has happened in the past.
If I remember correctly, with the first version of the software that I ever
used, I could actually change the settings for the speed that the laser
scanned on the part bed. Not that I ever messed with it much besides to
play with it, but I noticed when it was removed from a newer version of the
