Support Structure Path Control

Thu Apr 04, 2019 11:24 pm

Hello All,
This is my first post to this board, hopefully I did everything right.

I am considering buying the Simplify3D software. There are two features that are very important to me and I am hoping someone can tell me if what I need is built into the software.

#1) Support structure path control: I would like to be able to control the path of my second extruder (support material) so that it doesn't travel over my actual part at any time while it is active. I am currently using the Raise3D Ideamaker slicing software and I have little control over the tool path. Ideally, the path of each extruder would avoid the material placed by the other extruder.

#2) Custom G-code at extruder switch: I would like to be able to insert custom G-code when the extruder switches from extruder #1 to #2 and a different block of G-code when the extruder switches from extruder #2 to #1.

Regards,
pmb
