Layer Thickness and Perimeter Width
The 'Layer Thickness' parameter in carve has been renamed 'Layer Height'. The 'Perimeter Width' parameter has been renamed 'Edge Width', the corresponding 'Perimeter Width over Thickness' parameter has been renamed 'Edge Width over Height' parameter. The old parameter values should be read by the new skeinforge, but it's a good idea to check that they were.
The 'Remove Redundant Mcode' has been added. If 'Remove Redundant Mcode' is selected then M104 and M108 lines which are followed by a different value before there is a movement will be removed. For example, if there is something like:
with Remove Redundant Mcode selected, that snippet would become:
This is a relatively safe procedure, the only reason it is optional is because someone might make an alteration file which, for some unknown reason, requires the redundant mcode.
The bed temperature can now be set to change with the extruder height. The initial bed temperature is defined by 'Bed Temperature'. If the 'Bed Temperature End Change Height' is greater or equal to the 'Bed Temperature Begin Change Height' and the 'Bed Temperature Begin Change Height' is greater or equal to zero, then the temperature will be ramped toward the 'Bed Temperature End'. The ramp will start once the extruder reaches the 'Bed Temperature Begin Change Height', then the bed temperature will approach the 'Bed Temperature End' as the extruder reaches the 'Bed Temperature End Change Height', finally the bed temperature will stay at the 'Bed Temperature End' for the remainder of the build.
Added the running jump space parameter to comb. The running jump space is added before going from one island to another. If the running jump space is greater than zero, the departure from the island will also be brought closer to the arrival point on the next island so that the stringer between islands will be shorter. For an extruder with acceleration code, an extra space before leaving the island means that it will be going at high speed as it exits the island, which means the stringer between islands will be thinner.
Fill and Inset, Infill Width over Thickness change
The 'Infill Width over Thickness' parameter was moved from fill to inset. The old parameter value from inset should be read by fill.
The location parameter names have been shortened, Location Arrival X has been renamed Arrival X, Location Arrival Y has been renamed Arrival Y, etc.. The old parameter values should be read by the new wipe, you do not have to do anything. This section if just a heads up.
