ideamaker feature request - custom first layer number of shells

Postby gizmo91 » Sun Sep 03, 2017 6:25 pm

You can adjust the height of the first layer, but I'd like to be able to customize the number of shells on the first layer.

When printing with several shells, the first layer "elephant foots" (widens) since you want that good squish for adhesion and the multiple shells just squish against each other. This makes the first layer slightly wider than the above layers. When printing gears, etc it can cause issues and parts need to be modified by hand.

I do this manually by running my 'first layer' profile, saving the gcode, then running the regular profile (with multiple shells), saving that gcode, and then take the 'layer 0' gcode from the 'first layer' and overwriting 'layer 0' in the regular profile. Works like a charm, but takes some time.

So figured this may be an easy add for ideamaker!

BTW - if there is already a way to do this please let me know!
