Orthogonal view in ver.3

I found it! Go to menu>tools>options>visualization and there's a little box to check.

Very nice.

Re: Flat Top view (no perspective)

Yes, the ability to toggle between perspective/orthographic would be very useful in placing manual supports.

Re: Speed - mm/minute? Why not mm/sec?

+0, or is it -0?

It's a trivial mental calculation to divide by 60, isn't it?

Re: Estimated print time & Filament

I don't understand this. How would it be possible to determine time or material usage without it being sliced first?

Print speed, layer height, nozzle size, and infill are all variables that will affect time/material values.

Re: Printrbot Quality? Metal Simple/Go V2 profile?

Hello all, I just purchased software, tweaking along. How are Printrbot users coming along? Are you pleased? Oh, yeah. Very pleased. I'm using a nearly 2 year-old Plus, KickStarter version. Under Tools/Options I selected "Cartesian Robot" and plugged in the correct X/Y/Z values; that's pretty much ...

Re: feature request delete individual parts from an stl asse

You can do this very easily with TinkerCAD. Just load the STL file using the import options on the top right, then put a 'hole' shape over the bit you don't want to print. I've done that a lot in TinkerCad, but performance really suffers with busy/complicated STLs. Had the program hang a few times,...

[ADDED] Mirror function

I suggest the capability to create a mirror image of a part on the build plate.

This would be useful to make right hand and left hand versions of the same part.

Or can we already do that?

Feature Request: Active filament usage...

I'd like to see a counter that shows filament used and filament needed while a job is printing. This would make it easier to see if we have enough filament as we approach the end of a spool. It would be even better if it re-calculates as we override the extrusion settings.

Re: feature request delete individual parts from an stl asse

+1

Repetier has a split function, which allows you to manipulate/delete parts from complicated assemblies.

Re: Changing steps/mm ?

Very good.

I became so accustomed to Repetier's window method that I completely forgot about the "old way" used in Pronterface.

Many thanks.
