Remove the “On Click Print”

One Click Print is useless. REMOVE IT!! Programmers should work on more important and useful features.

Let me explain. Here is a Knight model that I’m trying to slice/print with UNIZ Desktop:

Obviously this is not the best position to print the figurine. As a curiosity I engaged a “One Click Print”. I selected a material of my choice and click  a Quick Print button. This is a result:

AS you can see, the model was auto-positioned in a way that the part of it was out of the building volume. Instead of stooping the process and to try to correctly re-position the model, the software proceeded with slicing! 

…ending up with an error saying to select a printer, which was already selected from beginning.

The support pillars/columns are WAY TO DENSE and UNNECESSARY, not to mention the cut-off of the model:

This is the auto-generated support of the BEST POSSIBLE Print ORIENTATION (Checked with other optimization softwares). But still there are way too many support beams:

Bottom line:

1) remove the On click Print as it gives WRONG solution

2) programmers should work on density of support structures. All good slicers have the option to select the density (in %) for supports.

3) add a fully manual support placing

4) add a through the model slider in a way other s/w have it. This way a user can clearly see where the supports are needed. Of course in addition to manual support:

To be fair! There is a manual support placement, BUT WITHOUT A COLOR WARNING AND CROSS SECTION VISUAL SLICING (last picture above) A USER CAN NOT IDENTIFY THE OVERHANGS AND FREE-FLOATING ISLANDS.

Therefore what is available is  useless!

You can rotate the model after adding support.

A …what??? If I rotate the model after adding support the support will RESET. Will vanish, disappear, go away! I guess you didn’t understand what I’m talking about.

I’m talking about having an option to move the slider (check the last picture) and visually CUT the model, to see where the overhangings that need support are.
