ideaMaker 迎来重大更新!让我们一起来解锁ideaMaker 4.0.0的新功能吧!

新增深色主题/淡色主题

Light Theme/Dark Theme

1. 增加“主题”功能。

1. Added Light Theme.

想要换一种视觉风格?用户可以在初次打开ideaMaker后,或者在偏好设置界面自主选择“深色主题”“浅色主题”

Users can select a Light Theme or Dark Theme in the startup interface after installation is complete. Users can also change the color theme under “ Preferences > Interface > Color Theme ”.

安装后初次打开ideaMaker

添加切片设置

Slice Settings

1. 添加“父模型重叠区域禁止生成支撑 (Don’t Support at overlap with parent model)” 功能,使修改器与父模型重叠的区域不生成支撑。

1. There is an added function called “Don’t Support at overlap with parent model “ so that the region where the Modifier overlaps the parent model will not generate support.

2.添加“删除重叠区域” 功能,切片时自动删除修改器与父模型重叠的区域。

2. There is an added function called “Remove the overlap regions ” so that the region where the Modifier overlaps the parent model will be automatically deleted when slicing.

3.添加“仅保留重叠区域”功能,使切片时自动删除修改器与父模型的非重叠区域,仅保留重叠区域的模型。

3. There is an added function called “Keep the overlap regions only “ to automatically delete the non-overlapping region between the Modifier and the parent model when slicing. This results in only keeping the model in the overlapping region.

4.增加“模型最小结构尺寸”功能。

4. There is an added function called “Minimal Part Size “.

ideaMaker自动检测模型中的细小结构,如果小于设定数值,则切片过程中会自动删除该区域;若大于设定数值,则正常切片。
ideaMaker will automatically detect the small structure in the model. If it is smaller than the set value, the region will automatically be deleted during the slicing process. However, if it is greater than the set value, it will be sliced normally.

注:

①模型最小结构尺寸以线宽百分比计算, 若线宽为0.4mm, “模型最小结构尺寸” 为100%,那模型结构最小尺寸为 (0.4×100%)×(0.4×100%);

②该功能适用于细小结构,如模型的尖端部分等。

Note:
a. The minimum part size of the model is calculated as a percentage of the extrusion width. If the extrusion width is 0.4mm and the “Minimum Part Size “ is set to 100%, The minimum allowable area of the model will be (100%*0.4) * (100%*0.4) = 0.16 mm2.
b. This function is suitable for small structures. An example of a small structure is the tip part of the model.

 

“模型最小结构尺寸” 为 100% 和“模型最小结构尺寸” 为 50%

Figure 10: The “Minimum Part Size” is set to 100% (left) and 30% (right) respectively.

5.增加“支撑厚层流量率” 功能。

5. There is an added function called “Dense Support Infill Flowrate ”.
When this feature is enabled, the flowrate for Dense Support can be modified individually. When the feature is disabled, the flowrate for Dense Support will use the value of the “Support Flowrate ”.

6.增加“Skirt/Brim 最小长度” 功能。

6. There is an added function called “ Skirt/Brim Minimal Length ”.
When the length of the Skirt or Brim is lower than the set value, ideaMaker will add more loop(s) until the total length is larger than the set value.

7.增加“使用单层薄壁光滑结构路径插值”功能。

7. There is an added function called “Spiral Vase Mode Path Interpolation ”.

用户在“使用单层薄壁光滑结构“模式下,如果上下两层在XY方向的差距较大,启用该功能后,路径会使用插值后的数值,均匀过渡到下一层。禁用该功能后,路径不再使用插值,只是用模型原有的外轮廓,可能会导致模型表面有空隙,甚至下一层挤出耗材会出现悬垂问题。

When Spiral Vase Mode is enabled ideaMaker will add an interpolation between the layers to uniformly transition to the next layer whenever layers have a large gap due to the sudden structure change in XY direction.
When this feature is disabled, ideaMaker will keep the original model structure. But sometimes, it may cause gaps between some layers, resulting in a drop in extrusion lines.

ideaMaker Library

1.增加“分享模板到 ideaMaker Library”功能。

1. There is an added function called “Share to ideaMaker Library ”.
Users can share a template from ideaMaker to ideaMaker Library with one click. For how to share a template from ideaMaker to ideaMaker Library, please refer to the Manual-How to share templates to ideaMaker Library. You can find it in Raise3D Academy: https://www.raise3d.com/academy/.

2. Once you log in to your ideaMaker account, ideaMaker Library will automatically login your account when you open ideaMaker Library. You don’t have to manually re-enter your account information when you open ideaMaker Library.

OctoPrint

1.切片后可以选择上传到OctoPrint

1. OctoPrint has been added as an uploading option. You can upload the sliced file to OctoPrint. For how to use OctoPrint in ideaMaker, please refer to the Manual-How to configure OctoPrint in ideaMaker. You can find it in Raise3D Academy: https://www.raise3d.com/academy/.

5.提示是否使用Raft的对话框中,增加“底座使用喷嘴”选择功能。该选择不会修改切片模板中原本的选项的数值,只影响本次切片。

5. There is an added “Raft Extruder ” option in the “Add Raft ” prompt interface.
This option will not modify the “Raft ” setting in the slicing template but only affect the slicing result once.
