I'm having the same problem on S3D. I haven't changed the offset from it's default, but my prints won't line up. Is there a G-Code I can paste in, or some other way to get the software to recognize the nozzle offsets?

I too am having issues with Simplify 3D and our Creatorbot 3D regarding nozzle offsets. I went to do a test print with infill in black, and the shell in clear, and when I came back, it was as if someone had yanked the infill 3cm out the left side. I have been looking through this site and elsewhere and I can't find an answer regarding how to check this setting or change it. Would someone be willing to give me some direction on that?
Having the same issue with Simplify...No matter what I put into Simplify I effectively get the offset ignored and the print is off, like you said, 3cm...I am running the version of marlin Ben put out back in May or so. I haven't tried the firmware from August. Not sure what changes were made in that version...Ben, any info on a change log for the August version?

I made this post on the other thread, but it is a S3D problem, not a firmware problem. When the slicer program generates the gcode, it does it based on the relative position. So if you have a line from x0 to x10 with nozzle one, and then you have the nozzle 2 come in and finish the line (x10 to x20) then the Marlin software knows there is a difference and compensates. Simplify 3D has a ton of bugs. You guys should try Cura or Slic3r. I have had great success from both. I do own S3D, and I'm beginning to think it is a waste of money.
