New Settings

Variable Line Strategy: How the walls are spread over the available space.
  • Central Deviation: Will print all walls at the nominal line width except the central one(s), causing big variations in the center but very consistent outsides.
  • Distributed: Distributes the width variations equally over all walls.
  • Inward Distributed: Is a balance between the other two, distributing the changes in width over all walls but keeping the walls on the outside slightly more consistent.

Minimum Variable Line Width: The smallest line width, as a factor of the normal line width, beyond which it will choose to use fewer, but wider lines to fill the available space. Reduce this threshold to use more, thinner lines. Increase to use fewer, wider lines.

Wall Transition Length: When transitioning between different numbers of walls as the part becomes thinner, a certain amount of space is allotted to split or join the wall lines.

Wall Transition Angle: When transitioning between different numbers of walls as the part becomes thinner, two adjacent walls will join together at this angle. This can make the walls come together faster than what the Wall Transition Length indicates, filling the space better.

Wall Transition Filter Distance: If it would be transitioning back and forth between different numbers of walls in quick succession, don't transition at all. Remove transitions if they are closer together than this distance.
