Compare G-Code model with STL model?

Hi, I want to see how the G-Code model geometry compares with the original STL imported model, is this possible? This is useful to understand in advance how much the actual printed model will deviate from the original design. For example, an overlay of the G-Code model on top of the STL model would ...

Re: Surfaces you can see should be printed slow, all else fa

upsm, I can feel your frustration, however a software with "Simplify" in it's name should be... simple, right? ;) Just kidding. Perhaps S3D in their next release can provide an XML file with a few hundred override settings for advanced users in order to satisfy all target markets. The main point I'm...

Re: Surfaces you can see should be printed slow, all else fa

I feel we can easily reach a consensus. I have no problem with adding detailed control for the user for all print aspects, for example in the "Expert" section. However, the big picture is, if the software is intelligent enough, there is no need for the user to waste time fiddling with every setting....

Re: Surfaces you can see should be printed slow, all else fa

I don't see why anyone would want to control the speed of hidden layers. I accept that for the outer surface to be perfect, there should be a speed gradation where the inner layers get progressively slower as they get closer to the outer surface. S3D already does this automatically with the outline ...

Surfaces you can see should be printed slow, all else fast

It is very difficult to adjust the speed settings to achieve maximum quality combined with maximum speed. S3D makes things complicated by dividing the visible surfaces into "solid top/bottom layers" and "outline shells". They print slower than the default printing speed (defined as underspeed in the...

Re: Adjust print speed for overhangs

This feature is an absolute must for any slicer. It will improve the print immensely where it needs it the most, at no extra cost in terms of time or material, and is not very difficult to implement. I've attached an image showing how the print speed should look like for the Benchy model on the uppe...

Allow gap fill only for top layer

The feature Allow gap fill when necessary is useful for covering up gaps between perimeters on thin walls when the Infill outline overlap doesn't work. The attached image shows an example of the problem with the Benchy with 0.12 mm layer height. The issue occurs when choosing 3 perimeter shells inst...
