Velocity painting

Tue Jan 31, 2017 11:21 am

Over in the Google+ 3D Printing group, a guy named Mark Whedon has been experimenting with something he calls Velocity Printing, which basically entails creating images on the surface of a print by varying the print velocity. The vase below is clear PLA with the speeds set to 35 mm/s and 15mm/s. It's very cool and I'd love to have something similar incorporated into Simplify3d... a long shot I know but seriously, this is cool.

+1 It has been suggested that this can be done using Modifier Meshes which is another requested feature.

I'm wondering if this could be done in a similar way to how dual-extruder is done... 2 models, 2 different processes, only using the same toolhead.

No, because the advantage of this technique is that it works without lifting the print head. I believe that with separate processes they are printed in their entirety in a sequential manner.
