IdeaMaker feature requests

Postby checktest » Fri Sep 09, 2016 5:01 pm

1. Add the ability to to auto arrange models on build plate
2. Add the ability to access slicing profiles without having a model loaded
3. Make the standard top, left, right, etc, views automatically zoom out so they see entire print area
4. Add the ability to run multiple processes on a single part

I can understand the 2nd.
And the third, currently it will zoom out when you choose up, left and right arrow or home button at the right corner.
Would you like to explain more details of the other two?

1. Same as the "center and arrange" button on Simplify3D

3. Yeah, but if you have a tall model you can't see the whole thing, doesn't zoom out all the way

4. Also similar to Simplify3D, where you can run one process (maybe with higher infill) up to one Z height, and then use another process with less infill beyond that

Also, could you make it so the software saves your default selection of the View>orthographic setting so I don't have to change that every time?

Thanks for all the updates and for listening to your customers! That's how good companies become great companies.

Auto arrange again :roll:
For now I'm use MagicsRP for prepare STLs, and always to arrange many parts on a plate.
It's looks like this, see the pic:

Thanks GOD IM have the Auto Ungroup function if I need to delete or replace some models :D

Raise3D, when you will be working on that feature please try to autoplace parts like MagicsRP do :P

Thanks for your sharing! The picture does make sense to get your point.
We will take a look how to achieve this function.

A few (hopefully easy) additional requests:

1) Shortcut key for "Lay Flat": Simplify3D uses Ctrl+L

2) "Move Up" and "Move Down" buttons for Print Settings. I've just starting using iM and it seems like the list can become long quickly.

Thanks for your suggestions!
For the second one, do you mean you want to move the sequence of printing templates?

+1 for auto-arrange. IdeaMaker is the only slicer I've ever used that doesn't have this feature.

Also +1 for more shortcuts, especially for "duplicate". Ctl-D should make one duplicate of any model(s) selected.

I have an issue with a thin walls sometimes:

but I don't wanna use grid/lines fill to all 3dmodels..

Tried to use some per-layer settings but nothing helps.
If only I could use this setting... ;)

Hi Dex,

Just to simplify the request, you are asking for ideaMaker to differentiate between top and/or bottom surface fill type?

Just a thought about adding not only infill type per-layers but bottom or top infill type..

+1 VERY much would like to be able to change settings per layer. so after a certain point i can change the layer infill vs wall. i print some parts that really like to be filled in vs built by walls it makes it stronger but doing the WHOLE model this way takes longer. If i could say use 4 walls in the beginning and then 2 walls with 100% after 40% progress it would be a game changer...

May I ask the reason why you want to set the bottom and top solid layers' infill type to be different?

Do you mean you want to change the shell quantity and infill density per layer?
With the current beta 3.0 ideaMaker, it is workable already.
