Glad to be part of the forum, and for the testing of the Z-Suite 2.14.0.
Good News, is the slicing is MUCH better on the my Mac Pro (Mojave), went from 26 minutes to less than 10mins… great improvement.
New features are also an appreciated update.
Unfortunately, numerous times following the slicing process the model is no longer visible on the bed.
What is strange, as you go from model, to print settings, then move to slicing, slicing starts.
We see Generating paths, it builds the model slice by slice,
The on finishing this, the model disappears, you see only the top Slice,
You can use the slicing bar, and go down the model looking at slice by slice, but only the current slice is seen ;(
Export the model, this works, you get the model in Z-suite Z-code.
If you now drop this code back into Z-suite, guess what.
It renders and you can see the model in ful glory, with the raft and all visible.
So It happens on every model I have sliced, to control the model before printing, I save out the Z-code,then drop it back to validate… Just a slight annoyance, but workable.
Other thank this, little annoyance, I am really happy with the performance increase, is regular see 3 times the slicing speed… some of my models are rather large, so maybe I should also take this opportunity to reduce polygons, just sometimes don’t have the time.
Thanks and Regards
