Re: add surface pattern by varying extrusion rate on the perimeters

+1, but these sound like two different features to me. The texture feature could be implemented as a generated feature (take this model and just add a texture to it), but the vase example would have to give you some other way to model the feature you want to add - maybe that would be specifying a se...

MakerGear M2 V3B default Extrusion Width set to manual?

On a fresh install of S3D 2.1 I notice the default Extrusion Width for a Makergear M2 V3B printer is set to manual 0.35. When I changed it to auto the value seems to change to 0.42 - is this a bug?
