Simplify3D hidden / undocumented Placeholders for post-processing scripts

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I posted this on S3D forum, but seems that the moderators don't want this posted (It's been 2 weeks) so, well.

Just in case someone it's interesting on doing something more advanced on the scripts tool change or just any area in general that allows scripts in Advanced, there are quite a bunch of placeholders that work and that ain't documented anywhere.

[toolchange_retract_distance]

[toolchange_prime_distance]

[retract_distance]

[prime_distance]

[retract_speed]

[travel_speed]

[current_position_x]

[current_position_y]

[current_position_z]

[next_position_x]

[next_position_y]

[next_position_z]

[previous_direction_x]

[previous_direction_y]

[previous_direction_z]

[next_direction_x]

[next_direction_y]

[next_direction_z]

[average_direction_x]

[average_direction_y]

[average_direction_z]

{MATH } <-- This one I have not been able to make it work, probably it's not active atm and might work on latter versions.

I got all the placeholders editing in hex the app file.

Example of stuff that you can do with this:

G0 Z100 ; Move Z to another position

G0 [currect_position_z] ; Restore correct position

(this adding more stuff in the middle it's how I'm doing my hotend wiper.

You could also send info to the ulticontroller on Layer change script area:

M117 [current_position_z] etc etc etc

The most interesting for me it's the MATH, but I had zero success in making it work.

I posted this on S3D forum https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3550 it's hidden, because S3D forum it's worse than... Crap? :)

Bel lavoro Pieri70! These extruder[K]_filament_used are interesting, but in my opinion the most interesting are those with the = => =< and other simbols after the placeholders.

@neotko posted some screenshots some time ago, I tried to use some of those but without results, without a serious documentation it is quite hard to improve the profiles and the prints.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
