Easier Import/Export

I have probably two dozen customized settings for my specific printer and filament brands that I've arrived at after many prints/experiments. Importing and exporting them through the one-at-a-time interface is just... painful. Then I have to remember to export the ones I improve over time. Can we pl...

Re: Skinny Support Warning

Neat idea. A quick tip in case you haven't used this before - I like to use the support "extra inflation distance" if I have tiny pillars that need to have a bigger surface area on the bed. For example, if you set this setting to 2.0mm, it will make the foundation of all of these supports 2mm large...

Re: Comprehensive Guide for Improved Print Quality

Re: Pointy Things and Bottomsides

Changing the support offsets to zero seems to have solved the problem--though it obviously creates another as I now need a pair of needlenose pliers to yank support off. But I'd rather have that than holes in my print! EDIT: I'm already at 0.1mm, so going thinner isn't really desirable (I've heard t...
