Change 1:
Its faster with the new menu but UX could still be improved. Old way was -> start slicing -> select template -> maybe edit -> slice -> wait -> click preview -> wait -> see result
For one tiny change you had to repeat all the steps. Now its: Edit -> slice -> wait -> click preview
Would be nice to have a Checkbox for Auto Preview close to the Slice button in the new menu.

Further improvement with 2nd change:
First the model disappears in the main window, second I can not change the settings fast and hit slice. Instead I have to close the preview first. In that case the preview takes about 600MB VRAM, thats not that much, even our office PCs have 2GB VRAM.

I don't know why its important to clear the ressources, I hit preview again anyway if I changed a setting. Because IM preview is very good, I get what I see (even the seam / coasting).


After the model disappears, the Preview still takes 600MB VRAM, if not, it will take more. Is your computer 32-bit windows? 32 -bit windows does have limitation for each process to make them under 1GB VRAM.
Thanks for your suggestions about the workflow. We will improve it in future versions.



Windows 10 1809 x64
Ryzen 1600X @3.8
32GB @3200Mhz
Vega 64 with 8GB VRAM

358MB RAM and only + 800MB VRAM used after preview finished. Don't have a 3d model to get it over 2GB VRAM.

The Software takes some VRAM after start, but loading a model adds only some MB, makes no sense to hide it in the preview.


Thanks for your information. We will take into consideration and improve the preview in future versions.

Hi

I really love ideamaker. I find it very stable and quick. I did notice with the latest beta that the middle mouse button no longer does anything. Previously you could move the printer display around. If there is some other shortcut please let me know.

Regards
Chris

Hi Vicky

It relates to the pan feature. Previously I could just hold the middle mouse button down and pan the screen. Now it seems I have to click the pan button and manipulate via the left button. Also noticed drag and drop of stl file into the window no longer seems to work. I get a mouse icon appear with circle with line through it indicating this is not a valid operation (whilst dragging the stl file and hovering over the window).

I just tried middle mouse button on my computer with the new version of ideaMaker, it seems working properly for me.
Please check your mouse drive or other related mouse settings in your computer to see whether you can find anything related.

The file drag issue should be something banned by your operation system. Try edit ideaMaker to be Run as Administrator by default and see whether can fix the issue.

Hi Vicky

Everything is now working ie both the pan support with middle mouse button and the stl drag and drop support (running as normal User not as administrator). There was a windows update yesterday so not sure if this is what fixed the issue. I had previously tried rebooting without any improvements. In any event nice to get this functionality back.

Cheers
Chris

I should have done a windows update last week as well. But the middle mouse button pan function still works properly for me in ideaMaker. Please check the attached video.

Hello,

I just use the new Beta and I'm happy that's my problem with the preview is solved if the system local settings are europe not english or US under the operation system linux.
But now I've a new problem. I have a use for a flower pot in cone shape designed not only the shell but solid. Now I say when printing, no filling and no bottom and then I get attached preview and the same printer prints. This leads to extreme vibrations as it prints zigzag at the marked areas.

Editing the Top Solid Fill Layers yo be 0 under Per-Layer settings should be meet your needs.

Is there any chance you can recreate the same issue again? Does the issue always happen with the same file or it happens randomly?
Whether the Preview loading bar is moving or stuck from the beginning?

I use two monitors, IM on the second. When the opening of gcode begins and if another window is made active, then the IM window stucks.
It is loads file OK. Just need to activate preview window.
That's kind of issue! =)

GREAT QUESTION: IS it possible to make a progress bar not continuous? Just one way from left to right? Would be nice.
