Voxelizer Experimental release notes 2018-11-12

Features

  • initial Diamond hotend / Repetier Firmware multimaterial compatibility (issue #190, as proposed by @avaccaro in this thread) - choose Repetier as Filament switching method
  • reworked the default print start procedure (issue #187, as deliberated by @dggrant in this thread)
    • the default procedure now first homes all axes, moves up and waits for the extruder to heat up
    • the procedure can be overridden by turning off home before printing in Toolhead settings and writing custom Gcode on start
  • edit boxes now accept home and end keys (issue #188, as suggested by @shadowhawk )
  • added a tooltip explaining Quick Settings (issue #174)
  • improved robustness of printer profiles listing (issue #197) - local results will be shown if the server doesn’t respond in 3 seconds

Bug fixes

  • freshly saved Voxelizer Project files didn’t show up on Recent files list (issue #191, as observed here)
  • fix Pattern filter causing Voxelizer to crash (issue #193)
  • fix crashes sometimes occurring when choosing bottom layer structure (issue #195, as observed here)
  • fixes for texture mapping (issue #189)
    • search for textures in subfolders
    • fix for the texture not being correctly mapped on the mesh
    • mapping a larger texture now shows an animation on the object instead of freezing the program
  • choosing surface error diagnostic view now shows a spinner, no longer hanging the program (issue #198, as pointed by @shadowhawk here )
  • fixed some tooltip spellings (thanks to @tomdmeeks for this thread)
