Polygon X

version 2.2.106 updated 14th October of 2021
This update provides some UI and auto-settings algorithms changes and slicing improvements. Further updates will not require downloading a special file from our website. If your PC is connected to the Internet, you will see a notification of the next update and button for in-app downloading.


What's new:
— UI of model editing (scaling, rotation, and copying) has changed. Now you can see the whole viewport while editing.
— 1 cm grid added to the viewport. It helps to estimate the distance between models on the platform.
— "Support frequency" added to the Professional settings mode. This setting has the same functionality as "Infill frequency", it's a thickness per layer of support infill as a multiplier of the layer height.
— Auto-settings algorithms have been updated. Prototype mode now uses double infill and support frequency, if layer height is less than half of nozzle diameter.  Durable mode now uses a "Full honeycomb" (30% density) infill pattern instead of "Simple honeycomb" (50% density). These changes reduce a print time for some tasks.
— Now you can set the "Lines" preview mode by default via Interface configuration settings (it works only for plgx-tasks).
— Support interface lines are now always 90 degrees rotated against support infill lines (for "line" or "zigzag" patterns). It improves the quality of easy-to-separate supports.
— Hotkeys list has expanded. Every screen closes via Esc, call-to-action buttons presses via Ctrl+Enter and default copy/paste is available via Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V.
— Every model could be rotated at a fractional angle.
— Some settings now have an increment switch.
— Task name is the same when you save it to file or for the network.
— Algorithms for "Thin wall optimization" and "Fill Gaps Between Walls" have improved.
— Some task preview and slicing bugs have been fixed.

Short October's update:
— UI improvements of cloud material profiles base.
— Auto-settings algorithms changes connected with the "Infill frequency" and "Support frequency" settings. Soluble support preset always uses a single support frequency, because it is vital for PVA support. Infill overlap doesn't use anymore if "Infill frequency" is more than one — this case provides a natural overlapping already.
