Velocity Painting

Came across this great development by Mark Wheadon who makes beautiful prints with his idea to combine a pattern and print speed. His idea was made into an app by Guillaume and is easy to use. Find more about this here and support these guys!

A video tutorial can be found

The idea is that you take a good black and white picture (white is fast, black is slow) and use one of the projections (x-y-z-cylinder-sphere) on an already sliced gcode. The viewer on the site makes it easy to see the result.

you might want to invert a pattern: black is slow, white is fast
