Loving the ease of making slices for laser-cutting - thanks so much for the tool! But I am struggling to get the slices aligned. Is there a function so we generate an outline on the bottom piece so we know exactly where the next one goes, e.g. like this:
i.e. blue would cut, red would score, and we could use the scored lines to align perfectly the next layer.
Hi @mak and welcome! Can you do something as simple as add one or two pin holes that goes through the entire stack?
Thanks @stewart. Yes, but it would require a lot of pinholes for anything more complex, such as
and I think I’d lose track of which pinhole went where.
The previous slicer I used was a now-defunct plugin for Fusion360 which had this function built-in, and I didn’t realise how important it was until I tried making a topographical map without it!
oh, wow. totally makes sense for that let me take a look at the code and see if I can whip something up. the easiest way to do this is with SVG colors, if you’re using that output.
Awesome, that would be amazing. Colored SVG is perfect
@mak I didn’t forget about this. the latest dev release
3.1.D7 has a new option under output
for a model like this
it adds a different color mark so you can enable a different laser power for marking stacks
Amazing! Can’t wait to try it out. Thanks so much!
Hi @stewart - thanks again for adding this facility. I wrote an instructable on it, see Pending Review - Instructables
awesome. I assume you’ve confirmed it works then
