calculate use of pla

Post by hvdweerd »

How can I calculate or find in Repetier Host the predict use of PLA 1,75 for my brand new Felix 2.0?

I can find the print time, but not yet the usage of PLA.

Slic3r (build in with Repetier host) also. Look at the log, after slicing.

Thanks,

But the Slic3r is less accurate than the SFACT unfortunately.

Is it almost the same?

Well... the slicers are different. I'm using them both, and haven't decided what my favorite one is. Slic3r is way faster and has a way better user interface. But also some of the generated G code is smarter. And most of the time it handles 3D objects better by looking at the whole object instead of just a slice (saves troubles with a bit corrupted 3d files like intersecting faces)

The first is SFACT, the second Slic3r.

How can I get my logo back with Slic3r?

I'ts probably a corrupted model. I also can show sample's where Slic3r works better than Sfact, but like I said, I use them both. Sometimes the Sfact works better sometimes Slic3r works better.

Thanks, maybe I can try first Slic3r for measuring the lenght, thereafter slice it with sfact for print.

I hope that the new version of repetier will have this option...
