Hi, I have recently been printing face plates for electronics. For anyone that is curious the face plate is more for function than cosmetic purposes. I am just trying to improve the cosmetics if that is possible. The flat surface that contacts the glass is the front of the face plate. I was wondering if it is possible to change the slicing options for the first layer?
So far the first layer is always automatically diagonal random lines, whereas the fill layers can be recilinear, hexigonal, etc.
I was wondering if anyone knows a way in which I can change how the first layer of a print is done (lines in different directions, honeycomb pattern, etc)?
Another issue that I am encountering is that the nice finish that can be obtained between ABS prints and the glass is lost when I use ABS/acetone glue to counteract warping/lifting on the corners that occurs. I understand that a acetone vapour bath could fix this, but as the face plate is a large flat surface it would be difficult to find a jar that would house a vapour bath. (It is my understanding that this process is also patented and dangerous).
