flow rates for all but shells?

Postby walshlg » Mon Mar 27, 2017 11:50 pm

new ideamaker has flow rate settings for just about everything but no overall flow rate any more. Everything can be set but the shells afaict but how do you set the flow rate for the shells then? (eg important if they aren't sticking together properly) and there is no overlap setting for shells, only infill.

The overall flowrate is in filament settings.
The flowrate of every part in Advanced will multiply with this filament flowrate. PLA should be 94% by default. You can edit if the default value does not work well with you.

Or do you think flowrate for Shell is necessary in ideaMaker? If so, I can pass your request to our engineer to assess.

THank you, THis is good to know, it was unclear.

YES, I think it would be helpful to add that to the menu

Vicky, I would just like to add my vote for this feature. I think it is confusing to have a slicing setting stored in a different part of the interface. Additionally, not all reels within a filament type are the same. I recently bought rolls of black and white PETG from Real and they need different 'filament flowrates'. It would be more logical to have one filament type eg Real PETG and then have separate slicing templates for each colour.

Notes taken.
For the slicing templates, you can add new filament type in Filament Settings. Export default PETG templates and import them under the new color you added.
