Presets groups together all those parameters that influence the generation of the g-code and, in the end, the quality of your print.
Advanced presets management was one of the significant advancements in the new Voxelizer. The purpose is to make the process of g-code generation as simple and quick as possible, allowing you to get high quality prints quickly. In this article we will see how to take full advantage of advanced presets.
Once you have voxelized your model, you will find the Printing settings tab with the presets on the left side of the screen.
There are three kind of presets: Filament, Durability and Support.
- Filament presets groups all those parameters that are influenced by the kind of filament that you are using, like extrusion speed, temperature, retraction and so on.
- Durability presets determine how solid your print will be. Here you can modify the type and the density of the infill, as well as the thickness of the exterior shell.
- Support presets give you control over the support of used in yourmodel, when supports are needed.
For each of the presets you can modify one major parameter with a slider directly from the Printing settings tab: path width and layer height ratio for the Filament presets (plus the adaptive height option), infill amount for the Durability presets and angle to which to apply the support for the Support presets.
You can add, modify and manage presets in the relative tabs, below the Printing Settings.
From here you can create a new preset by clicking on the plus icon. Or, after selecting an existing preset, click on the copy icon and start working from there. Once you have saved a preset you will find it the next time that you open the software. Your new preset will remain until you delete it. Please note: the default presets cannot be modified.
Experiment with the different parameters, create your own presets and get the best out of your printer!
