Re: Full Fan for Last Layer of Dense Supports.

That sounds like a really interesting idea which makes a lot of sense. I may have a play with that using processes to see what difference it makes.

Re: Accessibility issue for color blind people

I'm colour blind too and I have a further idea: how about when you click on the Feature Type in the list, it is highlighted in the preview screen - perhaps with the other features turning grey? Maybe allow multiple selections too? working in the same way? That is grey out deselected features? I too ...

Re: BRIM help

The short answer is that a brim is simply a skirt with a zero mm offset from part.

Go to Additions and configure the number of layers and outlines for your brim, but select 0mm for offset and Bob's your uncle!

Re: Is a 90% First Layer Pointless Now?

I didn't realise this had changed either. That does seem like a backward step to me too.

Re: PVA not sticking to PLA

Hi there, I'm trying a few prints that use PVA as the dense infill. Ideally, the PVA serves as an interface between the PLA supports and the PLA piece. We've had success when all the supports are in PVA. The PVA is able to adhere perfectly to the build platform, and then the PLA is able to stick on...

Re: Print direction and cross hatching

I've not seen that. Every print I can remember does alternate each layer on top or bottom. I assume that's what you're referring to? If you look at the preview, does it show the print being parallel (vertically) as you describe? What happens if you rotate the print? I'd be inclined to try that and s...

Re: Top Layer w/ "engraving" question

If I've understood you correctly then there are a number of possible options. One simple one would be to use the Variable Settings Wizard and create a change of process a few layers below the top to increase the density of the infill below the top layers - or simply increase the number of top layers...

Re: Bed Leveling Flashforge Creator Pro

It would help to have a little more information * Is this a new printer? Or has it previously worked and now stopped doing so * What type of filament are you using? For example PLA and PETG have very different requirements to get bed adhesion * ]If you run the test print on the SD card from FF, do t...

Re: Multi Material Printing - use color purge as infill

+1

I'd go slightly further to say that it is so fundamental an option as to not really need much justification.

Re: Blobs all over preview in 4.1

Ah.... You're absolutely right, of course. I must have enabled that by accident and, having never switched it on before, had no idea what it was.

Thank you for your help
