Re: Default Feed Rate and Maximum Feed Rate

PrusaSlicer, SuperSlicer, and others already have a "Volumetric Flow Rate" feature that you can set for different materials. I'd give that a shot until S3D one day releases a version of software that might have it.

Re: Shrink RATE , should be added to filament properties

parallyze, thanks for the detailed reply, it was helpful and appreciated. While the operation was obvious to you, the tooltip description is not as obvious for everyone. Having worked with other slicers that do handle true whole-object shrinking in settings (and not on a per-object basis), I assumed...

Re: Shrink RATE , should be added to filament properties

What you want to do is pick Material, Quality, or Extruders and add your setting to all of those types. No combining of different types. 1. Can you clarify what you mean here? Does the setting need to live in Material AND Quality AND Extruders, or ONLY one of those? 2. Are we talking about moving s...

Re: Shrink RATE , should be added to filament properties

I consider myself an advanced user 3. Regarding the horizontal size compensation, is there a way to input a percentage? Inputting a value in mm is not helpful considering different models will have different values here. If your model shrinks by let's say 3% horizontal size compensation won't fix t...

Speeds as absolute OR percentage

Something that is very difficult in S3D is how all speeds are set from the base speed, then specifying every other speed as a percentage of that. Absolute print speeds should be easily defined without having to resort to a spreadsheet. My advice would be to simply check ask the user to enter a value...

Re: Is there a 'ruler' available?

Not exactly what you want, but whenever you modify the part by re-sizing, rotating, etc, the XYZ box shows how large that model is in each dimension. Thanks for the suggestion! I am aware of that feature, but that doesn't help for models where you want to measure between other surfaces that are not...

Re: Is there a 'ruler' available?

I would be VERY interested in a built-in ruler measurement between two surfaces or two points. I don't know of any other slicer that does have this, and it would definitely be a very useful tool.

Re: Version 5 Announcement

I don't think 4.1 is crap at all. The question was if it was worth recommending to a new user. In general, when I purchase commercial software, I expect a certain level of support, ESPECIALLY in circumstances where competition is stiff. In this case, there seems to be no end to options available for...

Re: Shrink RATE , should be added to filament properties

Jake, is there a single comprehensive resource available for guidelines and limitations of manually editing FFF profiles? I see bits and pieces in threads throughout the forum but no comprehensive resource int the Support area. We've not published anything comprehensive on the subject at this point...
