Feature Request: Set starting angle for Infill / TopLayer / Support Structures

Postby SchMax » Wed Sep 19, 2018 7:21 am

Title: Set starting angle for Infill / TopLayer / Support Structures
Description: being able to set an angle for Infill / TopLayer / Support Structures
Version: 3.1.7.1850
Operation System: Win10
Reason:

We mainly print architectural models the top layers and good looking overhangs are very important to us.
As it is now, ideamaker always starts witha 45° angle with infil

Being able to set it to 0° would make some models look better.
Also being able to set the support structures at an angle would be nice (and even more important)
as you can see in the 2nd photo - some times the support doesn't even support the most important edges! (we would like to stick to linear supports because they are way easier to remove and you don't accientially damage your model)

our workaround at the time ist to put the whole model on the buildplate at a 45° angle - which limits us in buildsize.

You can change support infill angle under support tab.
Angle adjusting for Infill and Solid Layer Infill has already been added in ideaMaker now. You should can see them in next version.
