Slicer settings

Hi,
im currently writing the documentation for the RatOS V2.1 and would need some help to finalize the Simplify 3D slicer settings.

what im looking for is this:

1. does S3D has a custom before layer change gcode, and if yes how is it called.
2. does S3D has a custom after layer change gcode, and if yes how is it called.
3. does S3D has a custom between objects gcode, and if yes how is it called.
4. does S3D has a custom start filament gcode, and if yes how is it called.

for #2 i would need something like this here

Code: Select all

_ON_LAYER_CHANGE LAYER={layer_num + 1}
for #4 i would need something like this here

Code: Select all

SET_PRESSURE_ADVANCE ADVANCE=0.05
thanks in advance

Re: Slicer settings

For #1 and #2, if you go to Edit Process Settings > Scripts tab > Layer Change, you can enter custom gcode for the pre and post layer change scripts.

For #3, that is typically done using the Edit Process Settings > Scripts tab > Process Change script. You assign a different process to each model using the Variable Settings Wizard and then it triggers a process change every time it begins printing part of a new model.

For #4, we also have pre and post retraction and tool change scripts, so I assume you could use depending on the use case.

Finally, I should also mention in the layer change scripts, you can use the {IF} statement conditionals to cause a command to only be included on a specific layer. For example, in the post layer change script you could write:
{IF "[current_layer_number] == 15"}M0 ; pause at layer 15

Hope that helps!
