Elephants foot compensation

Postby leonhart8888 » Wed Jan 06, 2021 6:53 am

I know prusa slicer has a compensation mechanism for this.

Does ideamaker have a setting to compensate for elephants foot caused by squishing of the first layer for adhesion to the build surface?

If not, can that be added to the feature request list?

It looks like I'm able to achieve this by using the "per-layer" settings for the first layer along with XY compensation. Testing that now.

Per-Layer Settings should be helpful to the issue.
