I dentify Layer Where Things Happen Like Fan On - Off

Wed Oct 31, 2018 7:05 am

Several times now I add fan control at specific layers like on at 22 and off at 30.
I have wished that I could see on the print preview where that is taking place on the model. Like a visual aid that I got the right layers!!
Kind of like the multi process wizard shows the plane/layer where you want to insert a new process.

My thought is to have an option to turn on-off a view that can display things that happen a various layers while printing such as when a fan may come on and then off again.
I know, not really an essential thing but handy to be able to see at what level things may be happening.

just like movement speed would be cool to have coloring by
- temperature
- fan speed
- extrusion width (so we can see those single extrusions)
gcodestat integrates with Simplify3D and allow you to
Calculate print time accurately (acceleration, max speed, junction deviation all taken into consideration)
Embed M117 codes into G-Code
Upload your G-Code directly to Octoprint

Something like a console viewer to show what's happening in the current line would be helpful when using the show by line feature. I've been opening up in notepad++ and scrolling to the lines in question to follow along.
