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? :)
