Add cooling tower to print bed while slicing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Add cooling tower to print bed while slicing

I would think this is feasible, then again, I'm not a programmer.

I would like to be able add cooling towers to the build plate from the slicer interface. There could be a option add a tower, maybe a diameter selection. Once added, the tower could be dragged around the build plate to the users preference. The height of the tower could be automatically the overall height of print objects, or configurable. Maybe the tower XY area (therefore print time) could fluctuate to maintain a minimum layer time. You might print the tower at a slower velocity just to occupy time, and at the same time use less material...

Wanted to throw the idea out to see what others think. If I recall, feature requests are best made on Github. Don't remember my password there and not inclined to deal with that atm.
