Add manual layer height

Posted · Add manual layer height

Within the settings you can find a checkbox called "Adaptive layering". I think it would be nice if, inside the "Modify settings for overlap" mesh type, the "Layer height" option would be there. This would allow you to set different layer heights for different parts of your model(s), e.g. say I wanted to print a Flexi Rex. Normally, I would set a small layer height so the joints don't fail, but then the whole model would have to be that layer height, therefore taking more time. But if I use this feature, I could add a cube, scale it to fit the joints, and set the joints to be a smaller layer height, so the joints would be a smaller layer height, but not the whole model. TL;DR Add kind of a manual adaptive layering. Thanks!
