I put my vote for this feature as well. Sooner rather than later please. I gave up on V5 due to several issues, this included, and went back to V4. At the 1Y anniversary for version 5, I was hoping to see some improvements, but it looks like we are on a slow roll of updates again...
Mainly, stuff that worked in V4 is missing in V5. I was really hoping to try V5 again... Looks like the DEL key issue was resolved at least.
Well, it has been unofficially but tacitly acknowledged that S3D is aware of the problem. REF: viewtopic.php?p=65907#p65907
I can't imagine S3D doesn't care about the concern if they know about it and there is this much interest from the customer base. It doesn't seem like it would be difficult to implement, but not knowing the code, the only explanation I can come up with is the feature for some reason is more complicated to implement than expected.
If S3D could make this automatic and dynamic it would be awesome.
I would be happy just to have the feature back, then we can look at improving it...
I wonder if they removed it because it was confusing. In v4, the hidden bodies would still be sliced. If they do re-implement it, I'd like to see it slice as it appears on the build plate, i.e. if it's hidden, it shouldn't be sliced.
I don't think it was confusing. Once you realize you have to set up the process to print only certain models. You can hide the models when setting up the build plate, but still have the process set to print the models. Likewise, you can have the models shown on the build plate but then have them disabled in the process. Previewing the 3D print before hand is crucial.
Yes, so many things V4 had that have been removed or have become more tedious in V5.
[*]The Infill slider is missing
[*]Value/input boxes do not repeat with long up/down arrow press
[*]Missing infill angle settings REF viewtopic.php?t=16624
Some of the new features in V5 are really cool, but not worth it if the cost is the loss of functionality that was present in V4.
