    Simplify3D 4.0 has just been released, it is a heafty hit at $149US but you can try it free for 2 weeks to ensure the cost is justified for your needs: https://www.simplify3d.com/software/release-notes/version-4-0-0/

    Apparently 4.0 is said to be a free upgrade for existing owners, but I would suggest verifying that to be sure: https://www.reddit.com/r/3Dprinting/comments/6pf6f3/simplify3d_version_4_was_just_released/dkoznud/

    I can confirm that 4.0.0 is a free upgrade for current users. It appears to install as "standalone" but then imports all your processes etc.

    It's a hefty price tag for a slicer (more than my printer!!) However, I get far less failed prints in S3D and the ability to change the infill per layer / model is excellent.
    For example. I printed a trophy and the middle could be hollow, but I wanted to top 5mm to be solid. Set one process at 0% infill and then have the other kick in with 5mm left to print at 100% infill.
