Feature Request: Show height and layer on the preview slider


Recommended Posts

Posted · Feature Request: Show height and layer on the preview slider

I have a DuetWifi controller on a FolgerTech FT5 and use the Pause at height for RepRap firmware function. It only allows entering the pause height in mm (I use mm)(some allow mm or layer but not this one). I have to use my 3d modeling software to determine where I want my layer breaks and write them down before loading the STL file into Cura. Sometimes, usually, I have to resize the Z axis height in Cura and now I don't know what my pause points are unless I use the slider and calculate the new mm value by multiplying the layer number by the layer height in the slicer. For example layer 125 X .15 = 18.75. 

 

Two things I would like to see: 

     Add the height value along with the layer on the slider, like they do in the Prusa slicer.

     Add the ability in the Pause at Height for RepRap post processor to enter the value as either a layer or height value in mm/in.

 

Love your software!

 

Thanks

Yeah, why don't we already have this. Seems like a natural feature to have in a slicer and low hanging fruit.

Measuring my model and defining layers is much easier in Prusa. But I'd like to stay in Cura!

This should be very simple feature to add. A basic calculator:

LINE HEIGHT * LAYER NUMBER = LAYER HEIGHT

    I use adaptive layers and would definitely like to see this, but that also makes it not as simple as height * layer. Still, it would be nice to have an easy way to see what adaptive layers is doing.
