Several, actually:

  • when in Layer View (Preview) mode after slicing, show the physical dimensions (height at least) of the current layer displayed as well when moving through the layers
  • cylindrical "support blockers" (also modifiable by "per model settings" as the rectangular ones are now).
  • allow a support blocker modification of "do not print" (with options to enable or disable top/bottom/wall layers for the surrounding printed areas, could just be the children of the base layer settings)
  • a "compare profiles" option (or plugin) that enables you to compare the differences between two profiles at any time, not just after you've sliced a model and go to change to a different profile, and it should include ALL settings, including the experimental and special modes.
  • 4a) when switching profiles, checkboxes next to the changed settings listed that allow you to choose which settings to keep or discard.

 

One more thing:  The ability to close the window without quitting the program and entailing the entire startup sequence for the program again.

This has been requested before, I believe it's still somewhere on our backlog

You can already do this. Just load a cylinder and mark it as a support blocker. You can use any shape of model as a modifier mesh / support blocker

There is a bit of a work around you can do; The complete (flattend) settings are pasted in the logs. But be warned; this is a very long list (~500 ish settings). If you want some more info about what's going on, you can have a look at the godmode plugin (https://github.com/sedwards2009/cura-god-mode-plugin)

I don't quite understand what you mean by this. Could you give an example?

 

For the future; Could you report feature requests on github (and please make one request per feature). You can do that on https://github.com/ultimaker/cura/issues/new/choose. This makes it a lot easier for us to keep track of it 🙂
