Diagnostic

Voxelizer gives you the ability to inspect your G-code though the Diagnostic panel. You will find it in the GCODE section of the program.

If, for example, you want to check the speeds  at which different parts of your model will be printed, you can choose Speed in the diagnose drop-down list. If you want to check layer by layer toggle one layer and choose lines as draw mode.

This is the full list of diagnostics available:

  • Normal: the standard G-code view;
  • Speed: display the speed of the line segments as per G-code commands;
  • Fan: display where the fans are active and at which power percentage;
  • Direction: display the movements of the extruder. Activate the empty toggle to also show the not-extruding moves;
  • Amount: display the amount of extrusion of the line segments as per G-code commands;
  • Simulated speed: display the speed of the extruder on the printer, including the machine's accelerations and decelerations;
  • Simulated input extrusion: similar to Amount;
  • Simulated extrusion: simulates the output of the extruder during the print;
  • Simulated extrusion per xy: like Simulated extrusion but only on the XY plane. These last two simulations can be used to predict possible areas of blobs and under-extrusion;
  • Lixel accumulation: shows possible points of over and under-extrusion;

Finally, if you want a 3D view of how your model will look once it has been printed, you can click on Engage voxel simulation. This will create a new voxel object in the Settings view.
