Post-Process - Infill vs Gap Fill

Postby zemlin » Sat Nov 14, 2020 2:57 pm

Looking at moving to IdeaMaker (Beta 4.0) for some parts I'm building. I've used S3D in the past but am getting some minor artifacts in the print which I believe are slicer issues.

I want to use the Post-process options to enable/disable certain features for infill and gap fill, but the TYPE comments in the G-Code don't seem to differentiate between those.

For standard infill I want to disable Linear Advance and Dynamic Acceleration to improve print speed. For gap fill I'd rather have those enabled.

If it's not currently in the code, I'd like to see an additional feature type added to the G-Code files.

So far I've found
;TYPE:FILL
;TYPE:SOLID-FILL

FILL seems to be either infill or gap filling
SOLID-FILL looks to be top/bottom layers.
Would love to see a
;TYPE:INFILL
added to specify standard infill in the prints.

If I'm missing something, please point me in the right direction.

Printers are Raise3D N2 & N2+ with Duet2 WIFI control boards.
Thank you.

Thank you. Would still like a way to isolate Gap Filling for post processing.

We will give Gap Fill a feature tag in future version, as well as an individual color in Gcode Preview.
