[FEATURE][IM-3.3.0]Ironing

Postby carver0510 » Thu Jan 24, 2019 8:14 am

Title: Ironing
Description: Cura offers and Feature called "Ironing". It smoothen the top layer and makes cubic or flat prints look much better. (Like seen in this Video https://youtu.be/CzW45MphcK4)
Version: 3.3.0
Operation System: MAC OSX
Reason: Due to you are making printers also for printshops or companie, which offers their prints to customers, it would bring a big effort for them, because the parts look much cleaner and so the customer will come back and order again. And when there are many prints, the companies - maybe - will buy another machine ;)

[FEATURE][IM-3.3.0] Keep Nozzle Inside Model (with Options)

Feature Request:
Title: Keep Nozzle Inside Model
Description: When printing certain models it is preferable to keep the nozzle withing the already printed area. The current features and combinations thereof do not appear to force this behavior.

When enabled, the nozzle would remain withing the boundary of the already printed model.
Options related to this feature would:
1. On (Whole Model) ** nozzle stays within the model boundary for the duration of the print job**
2. On (No Top/Bottom) **nozzle stays withing the model boundary, except for outer skin surfaces where it may travel outside and z-hop to avoid travel lines and scarring**
3. OFF

Version: [3.3.0.2343]
Operation System: [Win10]
Reason:
For example, when printing curved lithophanes with a fixed seam location, it is preferable to keep the nozzle within the printed surface to improve image quality and eliminate stringing while the nozzle moves to back the starting position of the next layer.

Another example is when printing PETG, keeping the nozzle within the already printed area also reduces blobs and zits on outer surfaces since the they would be more likely to be deposited inside the print rather than on an outer surface.

It may not be the same option, but we have an option called Avoid Travel Through Holes. Does it meet you needs or it still have a lot difference compared to what you are looking for?

Would you like to advise the main difference between this option and your needs?
Thanks for your patience.
