Top Surface Ironing function

Postby Mecha_Monster » Mon Aug 14, 2017 8:12 pm

I have just read about a new setting for Cura, Ironing. The function runs the hot nozzle over the top layer without extruding plastic (or maybe just a little bit, about 10%) to iron the crests and fill the gaps, smoothing the surface. Not sure if that's a feature or a hack, but the results looks great. Would it be possible to look into it and evaluate its fact-ability for Ideamaker?

Cura has a lot of useful features that are not in iM, because they have been actively developing it for years. I wouldn't expect iM to catch up anytime soon.
