some suggestions for new functionality

Wed May 27, 2020 5:03 am

I have several suggestions for new functionality:
1. Compensation of shrinkage with different scale factors for different materials. Horizontal size compensation, available in the process settings, is not suitable for this, since the size changes relatively.
2. The ability to install concentric continuous filling only for the upper or lower layer. Reduced print speed for the top layer only. At the moment, it is solved by two processes, which is inconvenient. Shown in picture 1 and 1b.
3. Variable extrusion with concentric continuous filling. Needed for an integer number of lines. A fixed extrusion width causes a gap defect, shown in Figure 2.
4. Decrease in print speed with concentric continuous filling as it approaches the center. Constant speed causes a defect closer to the center of the part. You have to reduce the overall print speed or create two processes. Shown in Figure 1b.
5. Reducing print speed when passing small elements of a large model, for example, holes less than 2 mm, islands less than 5 mm, radii less than 0.5 mm. Constant speed causes the separation of small islands, curved holes and radii. We have to reduce the overall print speed.
6. Variable coefficient of internal filling. More dense filling near the walls.
7. Software PWM of a blower for printers without a blower adjustment, for example CREATOR. It is performed periodically, for example, once per second, by turning on the fan. At the moment, it is decided to turn on and off the fan through the printer control panel during printing. Sometimes, on very complex models, you need to sit around the printer all the time and turn the fan on and off.

8. Display the operation of the cooling fan in the preview. By color as print speed.

#1 - you can scale models in X, Y, and Z. That combined with horizontal offset can yield excellent dimensional accuracy.

7 - heavily depends on the printer used. If I remember correctly some of the Creators were based on Sailfish like the replicator. PWM was added to sailfish at some time but not each manufacturer chose to adapt this. And if they did, they often did it "somehow, quick and dirty".
Example: Malyan M180 / Pearl Freesculpt 2EX
Based on a very old sailfish release with some newer additions added to the firmware. Using Simplify3D and it's integrated gpx to get the X3G files for the print you can't use PWM, it's either on or off to the fan - unless you're using the gpx.exe provided by Malyan and use this (process -> post processing), PWM control is no problem using that...

Also make sure you're sending out the right commands (firmware configuration -> FFF -> Fan Speed Control / gcode flavor in gpx.ini).

That's exactly what I did. But if the scale is in the process settings, it will be more convenient.

9. Zones of local blowing. In the picture is the handle.

Do you mean to suggest specifying a 3d region in which different cooling settings would be applied? If so, this directly related to other suggestions other users have already made with this same idea but for processes in general, so that any of your process settings could be altered for regions in 3D rather than just split up exclusively by Z height.
