In spite of all my warnings...



I'm getting more than a few requests for the code. Please reread the previous blog entry.  If you still want the code for whatever reason, you can download it at...

If you want to modify or upgrade the Slice and Dice app, feel free. You can either let me distribute your upgrades if they fit in with what I am trying to achieve or distribute them yourself. Just give me credit for where you got the original code, okay?

:-D I don't think your earlier one included a way to get the source. I'm assuming people where hoping that it would be usable, contrary to your warnings, out of the box.

Curiouse question, but the minimization of the non extruding path moves, will it end up being in skeinforge? The largest thing I've noticed, specifically when using a .3mm tip, is the amount of 'grey moves', which your app doesn't end up doing.

I'm just trying to cut down on the hassles...

Um... I not getting what you're saying here. :-s

thanks. :)

I don´t intend to use it but
there is a great overlap between
the code I currently need to write and parts of what S&D already has to perform
(slicing and stl-reading).

Forrest Higgs said...

LOL! Well, I hope you find it useful, then, if not directly than as a guide for what not to do. :-)

Hi Forrest, How do you control the slice thickness ( in your case it is 0.1mm and I am looking for 0.05mm) in the code?

Thanks!

Forrest Higgs said...

I use 0.5 mm layers largely out of practical experience. It is a simple matter to set the layer thickness thinner in the slice and dice software. That entails adjusting the polymer flow rate, too, however.
