Re: Variable Layer Height Algorithm

+1 this would be a great feature for prototyping. I don't know if it would give me the prettiest results. I think any given material needs to be fine tuned to a specific layer height. Changing the layer height by a factor of ten - I can't see it working so well on my machines. Would also complicate ...

I've spent a lot of time crunching numbers and using trial and error to make this get an exact start point....

Re: Avoid Crossing Outlines - Include Supports Moves

I've been trying to work around this and keep running into dead ends. Even when I design my own supports, and have those supports touching the the main body of my part, I get travel moves across my part. I propose an easy fix. When "Avoid Crossing Outlines" is selected, then limit travel moves betwe...

Re: Avoid Crossing Outlines - Include Supports Moves

YES PLEASE! This would be a great feature. I see why it doesn't work (because the support isn't attached - the toolhead must cross the outline). The fix would be to allow the the travel too and from supports to only cross the outline one time only. Please make this happen!!

Re: Tip of the Day 8- Scripts tab, G-Code

What's the correct script for a little extra extrusion following toolhead movement? I'm using the "don't cross outline" feature which is like a big wipe movement. The long wipe drains the nozzle and leaves a 1 mm void in extrusion at the start of my perimeter layers. You don't need a script for tha...

Re: Start Points..seam hiding?

That would explain the seam's affinity for edges that I've noticed. I guess I should incorporate a seam slot into my designs, if I want it in an exact place. Thanks for your observation.

Separate Fine Controls for External vs Internal Fill

Currently you can fine-tune the Infill with settings such as: Outline overlap____% Infill extrusion width____% I'd like these variables separate for internal and external infill. I would like the ability to have more outline overlap and extrusion on my solid top layers, than on my infill layers. I'v...

Re: Start Points..seam hiding?

Regarding "Choose Start point closest to specific location X:0 Y:0" setting. I've noticed this: As your part builds up it chooses the start location closest to X:0 Y:0 Z:0, instead of X:0 Y:0 Z:current layer height. In other words the start point is determined relative to a spot down on the build pl...
