Slicing and Dicing

The code to take horizontal slices through STL files is coming along.

The picture shows the RepRap GUI with an STL file loaded (this is clearly a silly orientation in which to build this block-like object, but it lets me slice the logo...). Inset is the cross-section generated near the top of the block when the "Produce" button is pressed (the purple rectangles can be ignored - they're for debugging).

At the moment the information is an unstructured list of line segments. Now to add some structure so the extruder can follow it...

Now printing the RepRap logo is something I've been itching to do for a while!

Vik :v)
