request "change stl without deleting support"

Postby stephanscharf » Thu Jan 04, 2018 12:46 pm

Hello Raise3D,
thanks for your great slicer software, I switched from Cura to IdeaMaker.

Here is my request (plus ironing...?):
Often I edit my stl-files after first layout print because of failures. And everytime I have to construct again my manual support.
It would be fine if there was the possibility to change the stl on the bed without deleting the existing support from old stl. This can save a lot of time.
(Maybe I overlooked this existing feature?)

Thanks!
Stephan

Hi Stephanscharf,

We currently do not have that feature in ideaMaker, so do not worry, you have not missed a setting. Thank you for submitting your request, we will make a note of it.

Put your custom supports in the model, instead of the slicer.

Thanks for your hint EldRick, yes, it's a workaround. Setting parameters for support in slicer is a bit more variable I think.
