1.2.6: Slic3r preview doesn't render skirt and brim #2649
I'm absolutely loving the new toolpath preview feature - it's a big timesaver when sanity checking generated prints before starting them.
I'm using the following Skirt/brim settings:
Brim width: 2mm
I tested with a taller skirt height thinking it might just be the first layer not showing correctly, but I still see no skirt even with a height of 10 layers. I am making an assumption that the toolpath preview should include these elements, but that makes sense to me considering it's a "toolpath" preview and should thus show the full path of the tool ;)
Well, I agree with you for the object, the brim and the support, as all of this is directly connected to the object
My concern was more about visualizing the entire skirt. As @alexrj said, if the skirt is tall, it would hide the object behind
As long as the skirt is never connected the object itself, I think showing only his X first layer(s) should be enough
Render the skirt with transparency could be a solution, but I'm affraid it would make the 3D Preview/Toolpath slower (right now it's not always really reactive)
Yes, a toggle button would be the most favoured solution for me. Could even be inside the preview window as overlay buttons, think of Cura for example..
(Could think of a "parallel projection" toggle switch in the 3D plater tab as well, and maybe shortcut buttons for top/front/side/bottom view angle - see Repetier Host)
