Here’s a preview of our next feature release. Try out Sawtooth supports early!
A new type of support structure that generates ridges that properly support your print without being too difficult to remove. By generating toolpaths in all three axes at once, Sawtooth supports is one of our stand-out features! We’re releasing this early with the hopes that you’ll get some good prints with it and let us know if there are any settings that still need to be tweaked for best results. Full documentation and explanation will come next week when we properly launch Sawtooth Supports in a beta release.
Sawtooth supports are not ideal for use on printers where the Z-axis involved moving your build plate. Also, please be aware that you may need to do some tuning to get perfect results with Sawtooth Supports.
Change File Path for Models
You can now right-click on a model to change it, while keeping its slicing settings and orientation. This is handy if you do a revision of a model, or simply want to replace it with something totally different.
Printing with support interface layers sometimes lead to inconsistent results. That’s fixed now.
Fixed Solid Fill Outside of Print Bounds
Fixed some cases where solid-fill lines were escaping the perimeters that bounded them.
Fixed a case where skirt tracks weren’t being printed.
