Re: Feature Request: Gap Fill

Are you talking about the options already in S3D for thin wall behavior? Just go to Advanced tab and look at the "Thin Wall Behavior" section. There's several options including gap fill. I think that what I am looking for is a feature that would allow S3D to automatically increase or decrease the e...

Re: Connect without resetting printer

Many of the cheap electronic control boards that are used for 3D printer will automatically reset when a new serial port connection is initialized. On many of the boards, this is actually electronically hard wired into the circuitry. For example, on one of my 3D printing control boards, I literally...

Connect without resetting printer

I've had a print working for the last 27+ hours, printing from the SD card. It was almost done and I decided to go ahead and load Simplify3D and prepare a file for the next print. Unfortunately, doing so with the printer connected automatically connects to the printer and resets it, in this case des...

Re: Feature Request: Gap Fill

I have that on. Slic3r seems to be able to vary the extrusion width a bit to avoid zigzagging back and forth, which is faster and smoother.

Feature request: Convex hull skirt

I'd prefer if skirts were simply in the shape of the convex hull of the lowest print layer instead of having all those corners, interior shapes, etc. Since the purpose is to get the extrusion working properly a convex hull will be a smoother operation and have a better result. https://en.wikipedia.o...

Feature Request: Autospeed/Constant volumetric rate

Another feature of Slic3r that is handy is the new autospeed feature which goes a long way toward reducing blobbing during a print . The implementation in Slic3r could use a little tweaking IMO, as it doesn't have the benefit of using Coast or other anti-stringing features very well, but for speed c...

[ADDED] Feature Request: Dynamic Extrusion Width/Gap Fill

Perhaps this is already there somewhere and I haven't found it, but... I would love to have a gap filling feature similar to the one in Slic3r (which is coincidentally broken in the latest version). This produces very accurate extrusion widths for filling gaps and is much faster than using 100% infi...
