UPDATED STL AUTODETECT

Wed Jan 20, 2016 5:08 pm

Hi,

this has to be the number one feature that anyone who uses S3D would want, especially since S3D is not freeware, meaning, many of us are using it on a professional level.

Could we pretty please have S3D be aware of any changes to an STL file? Anyone using a 3d printer for work is using a 3d printer to do what one thing? ITERATE! You design something, print it out, realize what needs tweaking, then mod your model, and print it again. This is what 3d printers were originally invented for.

Shouldn't recognizing an external update to an STL file be standard functionality? Freeware such as Repetier Host has had this for years now. If this has already been added, please, point it out to me because I haven't found it! =)

I know there is another thread on this, but since it hasn't been added since May 2014 (!!) and I have a slight variation (I'd prefer it to be more active than passive), I thought a new thread was warranted.

Otherwise, LOVE the software, anything more is gravy.



Thanks!
