layer scripting

Thu Jan 02, 2020 5:54 pm

Is there a tutorial for scripting ? Specifically I'd like to control the print speed and x/y axis movement speed after a particular layer.

So, for example, at layer > 3479 reduce X/Y axis movement speed by 50%

You can realize it with processes.
Create the first process and stop it at your required hight.
Create a second process. Start it at the prevsious hight and change your settings.
If you want you can create more processes to change your settings.

Here's a good tutorial on multiple processes:

This video was probably made before S3D introduced the Variable Settings Wizard on the Tools menu....which makes the process of working out the places to change process far, far easier!
