Suggestion: Slicing History

Recommended Posts

Posted · Suggestion: Slicing History

Quite often I find myself in the situation of having something to print, and as I try different settings, I quickly lose track of what I tried and what the consequences are.

I've found screenshots help, but they aren't labeled.

 

I'd like to see something like:

The columns would be only things that changed between slicing, and the CASE would just be how many slices ago.

 

A time stamp might help, as well as model name, etc...  But making table after table, opening notepad, etc, is a big pain and very hard to list settings.

 

I'm sure it could use a lot of cleaning up, and I'm hoping to start a discussion on what would be useful here. It kinda reminds me of the "g-code browser" from another popular slicer, but this would be head-and-shoulders above that functionality. You wouldn't even need to keep the g-code, just the settings and summary, and reslice when the user selects one.
