Relese-Notes for IdeaMaker 3.1.5.1762?

I just found and installed IdeaMaker 3.1.5.1762 but what I am missing are the release-notes for it.
Both on the website and in IdeaMaker itself the Release-Notes are no more current than 3.1.0.

Re: Retraction problem with 3.1.0

Actually we have considered that the strings will affect the final result of the top surface, so we force the nozzle to do retraction at the last layer of the model. If needed, we can force the nozzle to do the same at the first layer. Yes, please, I am printing parts upside-down all the time so th...

Re: Retraction problem with 3.1.0

I do not get it though. How can any part of the *first* layer be considered *inside* the model? Well, the "model" I meant here refers to the structure inside "shells". Sorry for misunderstanding. Well, sort of, I understood you well and unchecking "Avoid Retraction inside M...

Try to increase the value for "Mininal Travel of Retraction" to lilke 5.0 mm.
If the head has to move less than the given value it skips the retraction.

Re: Retraction problem with 3.1.0

If you have tried with unchecking the option of Avoid Retraction inside Model? The string lines in your first picture of printing seem all inside the inner structure of the model. Please check the result with that option disabled. I just tried that and it works better. Now all retractions points th...

Re: Feature request for internal support or infill when needed.

Slic3r PE is a bit smarter to add infill where needed: https://github.com/prusa3d/Slic3r/releases

Re: Retraction problem with 3.1.0

Sure, attached. Okay, it may not be easily possible to rotate the layer when filliing it in "Concentric" mode. What about filling every other layer with "Lines" then to make the surface stronger? The selected mode should be of course be used for the outer layers, so at least the ...

Retraction problem with 3.1.0

I just started a print and observed this on the first layer: IMG_20180217_105749s.jpg This is with IdeaMaker 3.1.0. This is the bottom part of a case and it has six holes in it. It does retract, I can confirm it from the print and it shows in the preview. But it does not retract everywhere it should...

Re: ideaMaker 3.0-RC Release Note Updated Rev. 3.0.5 2017.12.18

The Retraction will be forced to applied on the last two top solid layers. It's not, there is no retraction inside the model on *any* layer as long as "Avoid Traveling Through Holes" is active. On the first picture *I* posted there is no retraction and that even is the last layer. I notic...

Re: ideaMaker 3.0-RC Release Note Updated Rev. 3.0.5 2017.12.18

I have checked your file, the gap inside is too narrow to generate infill properly. Since Grid pattern is consisted by separate lines, but Rectilinear needs connections between each infill line to make the whole infill to be one continues line which needs larger space to generate both the lines and...

Have you saved the .data files of the previous problem files. We may can dig out the settings from there. I did not save any of it, only checked it in the preview. But I saved my complete user-data directory and some more before I allowed windows to flush everything. So I just restored the profile ...

Which version of ideaMaker are you using? I'm using the latest version. Sliced your tested file with 99% infill, I can see the 5th line inside. Well, this was with 3.0.5.1438. Interestingly my win10 died a couple of days ago and I had to set it back meaning all applications were gone and so are my ...

Well, yes, but editing the model is not always an option and definately not for everyone.

For the elefant foot compensation, you can use Per-Layer settings and add X Y Size Compensation for the first several layers. Acceleration settings, Infill patterns, placeholder requests have taken notes. Will add into developing list. I did not find that easily now as I was looking in the settings...

Just "coming back" from Slic3r PE I am missing a few options in Ideamaker now, yes while Slic3r has some I miss from Ideamaker. Slic3r has the option to compensate for elefant foot by shrinking the first layer in x and y direction by a given amount. This would make a nice addition to Ideam...

Thanks for helping test.


Well, how to put this, I would eagerly give it a spin but did not receive anything so far.

And totally unrelated I wonder why the 11th page of this thread disapeared again.
