Changing resolution mid print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Changing resolution mid print

Is there a tutorial on how to change resolution from .2 to another height, say mid print, to a finer .10 resolution?  Here on this forum and/or on YouTube. 

 

Much appreciated for those who do answer.

You would have to manually splice together multiple gcode files. What do you want to achieve?

Depending on your needs, you can also use the adaptive layers found in 'Experimental'.

Or if you need fine control, Slic3r offers manual control of layer height.

Thanks to all that replied.  

 

Specifically, I have an .stl file that's got a solid base, then one mm up is a logo and text which I want in a finer resolution which I will change filament.  I want the text and logo to appear with a better resolution as the base does not need to be.
