Smart Infill for Small Spaces

There are some geometries that can't infill with the same settings. For example, if you have a part that has a geometry that mostly likes single extrusion infill, but one area that would do better with gap fill, you are out of luck. This occurs when you have a corner that has a sharp outer perimeter...

Re: Tapered Coasting

Unfortunately, I have an older Type A Machines Series 1 printer. They bit the dust a while ago. So there is no support or updated firmware. I love the printer and it makes great prints. I tweaked the firmware myself a while back to reduce the acceleration and jerk and it improved the print quality. ...

Random Start Points on Face

Right now you can pick a point nearest a location, random, or optimized for speed to locate your start/stop points. It would be great to be able to select a face and have the start/stop points be randomized on the entire face, but only on that face. For example, if you had a part where there was a b...

Tapered Coasting

The printer head doesn't move at full speed everywhere. Printers have "acceleration" and "jerk" specified in the firmware to control the head as it approaches a direction change or stop point. If you were to plot the speed of the head as it approaches a stop point, it would appea...

Re: Support Extrusion Width

Question for anyone that knows: Why do you need all the other lines in there? Isn't that redundant? I tried running a test print with just the following in the Terminal Commands box: "{REPLACE "; feature support\n" "M221 D0 S80\n; feature support\n"}" It seemed to run j...

Re: Extra Outline Overlap & Extrusion Multiplier For Above Raft Layer

I have found a bit of a workaround for my own inquiry. You can use the "Variable Settings Wizard" to use three different processes on the same part. I have been playing with it and have greatly improved the first layer above the raft. I am still working on perfecting it, but here is what I...

Re: Extra Outline Overlap & Extrusion Multiplier For Above Raft Layer

Hello, Is there a setting for selecting one of two or more surfaces where there should be a "Raft" option? Example: in the photo below, I would like to have the Raft on the side that does not have a large surface to hold the Supports. While on the side where there is a surface, there shou...

Re: Support Extrusion Width

Thanks for sharing this. Very useful indeed. It would be great to see it integrated into a feature in the interface but I am going to use this for sure!

Extra Outline Overlap & Extrusion Multiplier For Above Raft Layer

Greetings, It would be great if we could tweak a few other settings for the very first layer above the new and improved v4.0 raft. Specifically, Outline Overlap and Extrusion Multiplier. Because this layer is raised above the raft for easier separation, the extrusion isn't pressed flat and spread ou...
