After clicking the slice button, the current view of model will switch to display the toolpaths/layers of the print job.
Adjust the scroll bar below to select the range of layers that will be visible.
3D - Volumetric rendering of the paths. If the computer does not have an independent display card, the 3D mode may cause software to become very laggy.
Contour - Display tool-path in 2D, the path and its width are defined by lines.
Lines - Only display the tool-path as a line. This mode consume the least computational power, so if 3D mode is laggy, switch to this mode to have a smooth preview.
The preview mode allow marking different properties of path in different colors.
Line Type: Mark entities into different colors
Extruder: Mark tool-path by their corresponding extruders
Speed: Mark tool-path with colors representing different speed
Temperature: Mark tool-path with color representing temperature
User can click on the names of title to define custom colors, a color swatch will pop up for color selection.
Preview of Seams
It is recommended to set color of infill/infill perimeter and perimeter into contrasting colors.
So that it will be easy to spot the seams on the layers.
