Editable bed clips either as part of bed or phantom on screen

editatble bed clips, in printer config.

Because we could put in where our bed clips were, height width etc. and then slicer or we could see if there was a collision between the nozzle/print and the bed clips. It’s something we had in CNC simulation back in the 90’s in industry.

  • Do other slicers do this?: Not that I have found yet.

Hi @Jimbo, welcome to the forum!
We’ve got an issue the add custom .stl files to represent your build plate which is similar to some other slicers. This would let you custom-model in the bed clips so you’d know where they were on your bed. Until we do that, I suggest you simply define your printer bounds to be the area where you can print un-interrupted by the clips.
