Suggestion: Slicing History

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
