[Sticky] PrusaSlicer 2.3.0 - Final release
S3D is too old-fashioned for me - no innovations, poor support. Anyway, I never received any answers regarding MMU2 requests and then turned to the forum experts. In the meantime I rarely work with S3D.
PS is a fine product and will continue to be developed (I hope so) 👍
Is anyone else seeing an issue with modifier dimensions not being correctly applied? The "Part Manipulation" fields seem to be confused when you apply dimensions to change the shape of a modifier. For example, after unlocking the aspect ratios, entering a Y dimension now also changes the X dimension in an unpredictable way instead of it remaining unchanged. So, if I enter an X dimension of 4.5mm and then enter the same dimension for the Y dimension, the X then changes to something else rather that staying at 4.5mm. Also, the position of the modifier seems to be uncoordinated with the appropriate "Position" field setting. For instance, I have to change the X position number to have the modifier move in the Z dimension! The image of the modifier also often appears to be obviously not the same as what is in the Manipulation settings.
Here is an example of an obviously symmetrical cylinder whose X and Y dimensions are however shown not to be the same in the Manipulation fields, even though the scale factors are. Changing any of these seems to cause a random change in the aspect ratio rather than making the modifier take the dimensions that you've entered:
Another thing -- notice that the Rotation values are X=90, Y=0, and Z=270. These changed from X=0, Y=0, and Z=0 as soon as I applied the modifier. When I set them back to zero, the modifier moves as if I were setting the rotation to those previous angles! Certainly didn't see this behaviour in pre-2.3.0 releases.
There’s a issue on GitHub where things get mixed up if you have scaled or adjusted the original part. At that point it becomes difficult to use the modifiers as the scaling/rotation seems to get applied to the modifier in non obvious ways.
Ok, thanks. I'll look for the discussion on GitHub. Didn't think I would be the only one who encountered this!
Also I tink if you spin the part X and Y stay with the part, which may or maynot be intentional but is certainly confusing if your working on a old .3MF
Why is there so much disparity between the downloads? Prusa site has a 359mb and 65mb and then gitub has a 42mb. Which one do I use?
I believe one is just Prusaslicer and the other is everything, drivers, samples, etc.
