Feature Request: Start/Stop at LAYER

Thu Dec 17, 2015 11:47 am

Although there is a feature to start/stop printing at a mm height, I often need to change settings at a particular layer. It is time consuming to carefully determine the height of the relevant layer.

Could you add a toggle to the "start/stop printing height" so a user can select a layer number or a height depending on what they are trying to accomplish.

The only problem with specifying layer numbers for heights at which to start or stop printing is where for example you're printing at a layer height of 0.2mm for the lower part of the print and 0.3 mm for the upper part of the print, then you have to do a bit of mathematics to work out the number of the start layer for the upper part.
