Been testing it for a few days, and i LOVE IT!
Love the printer selecter, love the automatic updating stock settings, love the newer-ish interface, love the detailed preview window settings after export.

Great work Slic3r dev Team!

Thank you for the update.

I had a question. If the "update built-in Presets automatically" option is not selected, is it possible to check for updates manually?

edit: and THANK YOU for giving us the option to change that green text to a different color 😆

Currently only an automatic option is available, you can select it later on in the menu "Configuration -> Preferences".

I love it, too! What's great is that app is finally starting with exe only, so easy transfer of STL from fusion 360 to slic3r is possible.

However, i wonder: is it possible to hide unused (unwanted) filaments? There are soooo many of them and i'm kinda lost in all those data and thus hard to find the one i need. Previously i deleted all profiles except one i use...
Or at least it would be great if custom filament profiles would be at the top, not at the bottom.

With 1.40.0-beta, I'm not able to connect to OctoPrint.
When I configured the settings IP and API an test, it returns:

Slic3r has encountered an error

Could not connect to Octoprint: HTTP 400: HTTP response code said error (22)

Note: OctoPrint version at least 1.1.0 is required.

My Version of Octoprint is 1.3.8.
In the last version of Slic3r, it worked without any issue.

Thanks for the great software ...

Hi Thomas,
just tested the connection between Slic3r 1.40.0-beta and PrusaPrint (OctoPrint) 1.3.8 and it works as it should.

Hi Jakub,

thanks for the info. Unfortunately mine did not.

For your info, when I started 1.40 first time, it took over all the settings from the previous version. Exeception was Octoprint, where the fields have been empty.
Any further idea?
I'm using Slic3r on a Mac Book. Can you probably tell me how to make a full rest of all the settings?

Hi Thomas,
to replace old profiles with new ones, please open the Slic3r PE and from the top row select "Configuration" -> "Configuration Assistant" and then tick the option "Remove user profiles". Let me know if it helped 😉

Export G-code and the new coloring by feature type will appear. I don't know what you mean by locked preview view - sorry.

Hi jakub,

this did not work too. No I'm really confused. It worked all the time without any issues. Just the last update to 1.40 "caused" the problem.
Meanwhile I rebooted my mac, I rebooted my Octoprint Server and I tried it again with previous versions of Slic3r. Unfortunately nothing changed.

Hey, So I don't use Slic3r that much... the inability to customize supports drives me to S3D always. But when I do try to use Slic3r PE I have a weird glitch. On my MacBook if I have the dock visible Slic3r will not go over the top of it. Basically as I open windows they all go over the dock like they should, but Slic3r sits behind it. So I have to manually go into my settings and hide the dock, or minimize Slic3r. It is so annoying.

Yes that worked out, thank you

Any chance of getting the print time estimated before exporting gcode. I like adding the time estimate to the file name, similar to the gcode files preloaded on the SD that ships with the printer. And it’s a PITA in the current version since you have pop out to the OS’s GUI/command line to rename the file after export.

It would be super awesome if I could just add {EstimatedTime} to the filename template...

i second this, just having the "output filename format" have a [print_time] variable would be perfect

I am having problems using the "Flash printer firmware" function.

Is there a way to turn on the 'Slice now' button when objects do not fit on the print bed?

I find it most annoying that it does no longer let me compare 2 versions of an object side by side. I find that to be an invaluable tool to improve the print-ability of my designs.

I suppose I can use version 1.39 for that, but I'd rather do everything in the one Slic3r.
