I suggest S3D add a feature that gives us independent control over the acceleration and jerk of the following features: Top layer, Bottom layer, Inner shell, Outer shell, Infill, Support, and typical travel.
What this will accomplish:
By allowing us control of each individual feature listed above, we can speed up the process for some features, and slow it down for the other that require slower acceleration and jerk.
How this could benefit you:
Speed up infill printing.
Speed up printing of the inner shells.
Speed up normal travel.
Better bed adhesion with lower accel/jerk
Better outer shell and top layer quality.
Optimize the accel/jerk of a second extruder printing designated support material (PVA HIPS)
Overall, faster print completion with the same external quality you have, or better!
More accurate print time estimates
And many more benefits!
Another slicer I use just came out with a feature similar to what I am suggesting, and it was really amazing! My prints came out a lot nicer and the build time was shaved down. I printed a 3 hour part and shaved off about 25 minutes yet the surface quality was much nicer than previously without the feature enabled.
On a side note, if S3D implements it all correctly, this will also help get more accurate print completion times which we all desperately need!
Please do give this a consider since it would be quite beneficial for better quality, faster printing, and more accurate print completions times.
