Preview layer by layer

Tue May 24, 2016 7:48 am

Hi there

I know i can see how the printer is going to print the item.

But is it possible to get S3D to show mayber layer 1-15, by entering the layer numbers?

And then add 1 layer at a time?

Having issues with S3D slicing it so that it has to print part floating in mid air, and the support generater does not notice it :(

If you go into the slicer preview mode, there are controls at the bottom to allow you to do what you are wanting to do.

Check the box Preview by Layer....and use the two sliders to control the star and end layers for which you want to display. The text bottom left corner will indicate the later numbers from and to are being displayed.
