Suggestions for improvements - PrusaSlicer

Bonjour,

I am not sure I am at the right place but I would like to make a few software improvements suggestions:

1) being able to increase the font size of the different panels will be great for my aging eys

2) unless I do not know the trick but when I rotate a part it will be nice if it will snap to common degrees: 45, 90, 180, 270 degrees

Keep up the good work - I just loved your slicer

André

Feature suggestions and bug reports should be created on Github here https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer/issues

As for the rotation that is already in there.  When you select the rotate tool with a part selected you my notice the circular pattern, if you move your mouse over the inner lines the angle snaps to those lines at 90 degree increments, if you move over the next section out they snap at 45 degree , basically each section out lets you do finer snap increments. If you have your mouse outside the pattern it’s a free rotation so you can get any angle you want. 
And of course the 3 coloured grab handles allows you to rotate in the axis that you grab. It’s actually one of the best rotate tools I’ve ever used.

Thank you Neophyl! I will try that - Like I said I have a lot to learn! Great to have some help!

I will post my suggestion on the link you have provided.

Stay Safe!

System font size is used. Why don't you increase system font size?

Unless I am missing something... If I change my system font size everything applications will be impacted and right now I do not have a problem with the font size of all other applications. see the attached files, without changing the system font size I show a screen capture of my Finder (which I read perfectly) and a screen capture of PrusaSlicer - notice the font size difference

Please feel free to make me realize what I am missing.

I will ask our tester to verify. I see you are on OSX, he is an OSX fan.

RE: Suggestions for improvements - PrusaSlicer

When printing large objects I find that if I slow the speed as the weight of the object increases I can avoid (or at least I believe I avoid) failures.

Repeated rapid accelerations with a heavy object can introduce resonant vibrations that can dislodge an object from the heat bed.

I suggest, instead of the user lowering the speed by interaction with the controls as the object increases in size, that the slicing software automatically reduce the magnitude of accelerations as the weight of the object increases.

Any thoughts?

Salut André

About the rotation issue, I had the same question: when rotating the model, make sure your mouse cursor touches the graduation lines, it will snap to it.
