Texture Feature

I was wondering if PrusaSlicer already had a texture feature or was planning as ideamaker has just come out with something that looks pretty good.

RE: Texture Feature

I second that. Would love to see this available.

RE: Texture Feature

you can already do this in almost any 3d program, it's really not needed for slicing that's a gimmick that Ideamaker has added.

look in your 3d program of choice for displacement, or bump maps or normal's mapping. all of these are basically the same feature it's been available for many years and can be baked into your 3d models before export.

 

of course if you don't have a 3d program of choice you can always just download Ideamaker for free

 

Good luck, have fun

The Cura slicer has a 'fuzzy skin' option which approaches this.  I've used it with attractive results.  It is not identical to, but compliments the pattern of the textured sheet very well.

The upcoming PrusaSlicer 2.4.0 also has an experimental "Fuzzy Skin" option under "Layers and Perimeters" in expert mode.

Very interesting surface effect.

Have a look at my designs on Thingiverse or on PrusaPrinters ;)...

Absolutely agree with Swiss, this is not a slicer feature but a 3d design function.

RE: Texture Feature

The face brick texture on the building below was done with a 'negative' model file having the texture, which was then subtracted from (cut from) the model pieces as the final drafting step.  I sure thought I had a photo handy of the wind turbine base showing the 'fuzzy' skin, but apparently I don't.  😉
