KISSlicer 1.5 release candidates 1 and 2

Post by lonesock » 30 May 2016, 16:13

Hi, all!

This has been a long time coming, but I think version 1.5 is ready (enough) for a release! There are now 1.5rc1 builds up in the Dropbox folder for Windows, with Linux coming very soon, and Mac to follow in a day or so.

Direct link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3evahzu5gfel ... _rc_1?dl=0


Please let me know of any bugs you find (things like crashes, controls that refuse to work, an ugly GUI...OK, maybe not that). I know there are a bunch of features and user-interface issues still floating around...this release is to get a solid platform out there for regular users to adopt so they aren't stuck with the very-out-of-date version that's currently on the website.

My plan is to let you advanced users play with it for a while, and if nothing major is found within about a week then I will officially release KISSlicer 1.5!

Thank you all for your testing, comments, and of course helping other users! You are a wonderful group!

thanks,
Jonathan

Thank you! I am stoked to see you have made progress. I'm gonna try it ASAP.

Thanks!

Well, squashed a bug already (some tooltips wouldn't translate). It's fixed for the release, but I'm not going to upload a new set of RC builds yet.

Anybody else find any issues?

thanks,
Jonathan

Oops, sorry, I did forget the changelog.

From 1.5 beta 3.10 to the new 1.5 rc 1:
  • Setting panel is now resumed to the last state (open or closed from when KISSlicer was last closed)
  • Disallowed negative inset (would break multi-material builds, needs more work)
  • Fixed a 1 Hz hitch that happened occasionally
  • Added extruder colors to the extruder map window (not the colors of the material in each extruder)
  • Sped up G-code saving a tiny bit
  • Added warnings when there is no G-code for same extruder warm / cool
  • Fixed a bug where the XY travel speed was not settable
Things I fixed since rc 1, but are not available for testing:
  • Fixed some widgets and tooltips that were not translated
  • Fixed updating a setting's value while a user is editing it
thanks,
Jonathan

When I change printers the Material Name in the Matl tab turns red. Not sure if it creates an issue or not.

When I click on the new Material Name in the Ext Map tab the Material Name goes to the normal black color.

Something weird going on with the transition from shell to infill.
It sometimes transitions to infill a layer too early in random places, making irregular islands of infill among the solid shell.

Here are my .ini files:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/170 ... BigBox.zip

Here are the STLs:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/170 ... 0Inner.STL
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/170 ... 0Outer.STL

Here's what the plate looks like:

Note the patch of premature infill on the right of the right part (Side Panel Lock - Outer.STL).
The part is completely symmetrical around the vertical axis.

Aww, man, I was just getting ready to push out a RC 2!

On the early transition, I think that is a numerical issue when the slice Z sits right on a top (or bottom) surface. (KISSlicer scans the model right in the middle of each slice, so if a slice is from 0 mm up to 0.2 mm, the geometry scan happens at 0.1 mm.) If you try modifying the layer thickness just a tiny bit (like 0.25001, instead of 0.25), does the problem disappear? If so, this a processor precision issue, and I can't do all that much about it (or rather, anything I do about it shifts the problem but doesn't really fix it).

Regarding the crashing, does this happen when you use "Reload from Files(s)" right-click menu option? Or any other specific feature? Can you find a simple set of steps that will let me duplicate the problem?

thanks,
Jonathan

Mac version

I posted about what might be a CPU performance issue in "bug reporting" here viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1315

also when in the Style tab, when I click in Layer Height, I get repeating characters. eg. if it has 0.5 and i click in the field, it will fill with 0.0055 or something like that. its very hard to trick it into allowing me to type 0.4 because everytime i start typing it auto-types.
