Re: Show in Preview -> Coloring: COOLING

Great idea!

Or failing that, some other visual or numerical representation of what the part fan is going to be doing.

It's useful to be able to set the fan speed by layer time but we don't know what the layer time is going to be without running the print.

indicate in models list if model is Scaled

Changing the Scale of a Model is tantamount to changing the Model itself. Once one starts playing with Scaling it's hard to keep track of what one has and hasn't done. Unlike changing the rotation or position of a model on the build plate, scaling (particularly when used to compensate for filament t...

Re: how to prevent support on just one of the parts in a process

That's definitely a good workaround and you did well to come up with it.

It'll now tide both of us over until the fix! (fingers crossed)

Re: how to prevent support on just one of the parts in a process

I understand your argument. Creating new processes is not something I'm averse to (typically do so for different layer heights and extrusion widths) but it is not innocuous since a new profile is a duplication of all the parameters one might wish to set. And if one decides to make changes in Profile...

Re: add custom supports while in cross section view

+1 for this, for adding supports

+1 for removing supports using cross-section tool

(This is surely just a bug??)

how to prevent support on just one of the parts in a process

If I have multiple parts in a process and generate support automatically on all of them, then remove ALL the support material from just one of the parts, when generate the G-code the part from which supports were totally removed always has a full complement of support attached to it. However if I re...

Re: auto layer height to get perfect top layer height each time

I know nothing but 0.04mm sounds like a bit of a worst case scenario on a modern FFF printer where 0.05mm is a typical minimum layer height. My other printer has: M92 X160 Y360 Z1600 - also a very high level of resolution for Z. Don't know about other people. The solution would surely be to put in a...

Re: auto layer height to get perfect top layer height each time

I guess if it's a problem for some people there could be a parameter "Fine adjustment Quantum" which @rexipus could set to 0.04mm (and I'd leave empty).

Re: auto layer height to get perfect top layer height each time

On my Duet Wifi my steps / mm are set as follows:

M92 X200 Y200 Z1600 E822

Looks as though there would be no issue making fine adjustments to the Z layer height.
