I have two Form 2 printers that run pretty much non-stop. So I spend a lot of time setting up new .form files for new parts. To insure maximum print success I take the time to go layer by layer and look for unsupported spots.
But I print in Tough and the dark green is REALLY difficult to see on either of the laptops my business uses for the unsupported spots as we go through. I don’t have the budget or the space to get a bigger screen to do the work with and I don’t want to change the way my entire laptop shows colors to address this (in and out of PreForm).
What I think would be a very simple option to add. Can I have a toggle to change the color of the layer being shown. Or if not an option to pick my color … could I just get say bright yellow instead of dark green when I’m viewing Tough.
I personally find PreForm very difficult to use as the colors are just not friendly to work with and really would like to beg, plea, bribe? someone to move the color of layer to something much more easier to view and work with. I lose way too much time each day with how slow I have to view the layers in order to catch these dark green spots.
Image below was an example. On the right side of the screen at the bottom of the top of the arm is a new dark green spot that I need to put a support to. Very difficult to see as is … if that was bright yellow … it would be so easy its not funny.
So please FormLabs … save my eyes!
