Re: Add layer placeholders to G-Code layer change scripts

+1 to WZ9V's idea Additionally, adding the ability to control the frequency with which the layer change script is run would be helpful. For example, I want to run my hot end over a cleaning brush, but I don't want to do it every layer. Having the ability to tell simplify to only run the script every...

Re: ramp cooling by Time + auto setpoint generation

@maker2

The user could still set a min and max fan and movement speed, but the software would vary both. Additional user set parameters such as cube size and time between hot end visits to a given cube could make the proposed methodology adjustable to work with a variety of printer designs.

Bridging Improvement Ideas

1. Shortest distance bridging Consider two concentric cylindrical walls that need to be bridged. Currently the bridge would be performed as a rectilinear fill. Using this methodology the length of the bridges constructed varies from the shortest radial distance between the two cylinder to the longes...

Re: select area to prervent printer head from crossing

Adding on to fastsmiles' idea: It would be nice to be able to assign a status of pre-exiting to the object and then have the print head navigate around that object. Taking this idea a step further - Collision detection would be great. A user could import and STL of the print head with the origin of ...

Re: bridging for exterior lines

I second this request for perimeters to be subject to bridging speed and fan over rides. If a portion of the perimeter creates a bridge the software doesn't treat it like a bridge. The infill on that same layer is correctly treated as a bridge, but the improperly printed perimeter often looks really...

Re: ramp cooling by Time + auto setpoint generation

What if the software tried to predict hot spots and then alter the fan speed accordingly? The model could be broken up into equal sized cubes. The ratio of actual model volume within a cube to the volume of a cube combined with the frequency with which material is added to the cube could be used to ...
