spiral vase mode

  • hi!
    the spiral vase mode is set on a counter-clockwise direction. Anyone knows how to reverse the direction to clockwise?

    There is currently no way to change the direction. Counter clockwise is the natural direction (if you remember trig) that angles increase, so that is the way that it was originally written. What is the use case you have that would be aided by running clockwise?

  • thanks. i'm printing a very simple cup-like shape, in clay, so angles are no problem. can you please point me to where in the code this issue is written?
    thanks again!

    If you search for:

    			if (spiralize) // if we are still in spiralize mode
    				// If we need to spiralize then raise the head slowly by 1 layer as this path progresses.

    in LayerGCodePlanner.cs you will find what you are looking for.

    Checking 'path.Polygon.GetWindingDirection();' would allow you to reverse the points if they are not the direction you want.

  • great, thanks!
