Questions about multiple processes

Sun Jul 23, 2017 11:58 am

I'm using multiple processes for a print: one set of settings for the first couple layers, then that process stops printing and the other process takes over. I have a couple questions though:
Do the first layer settings (first layer height, width, etc) apply on the second process (i.e do those settings apply for the first layer of that process)?
If I've adjusted my Z-axis height in the G-code tab of the first process, does this need to match in the second process?

I don't think they do but others here can say with more certainty!

I don't think they do either..... Based on the fact that when you look at the preview layer by layer, it won't redo the "bottom solid layers" on the second process. I believe the software will look at it and see that you're on a specific layer, and just resume. For example, it will see that you are not on layer 1, and therefore not do first layer width, height, speed, etc....
