Earlier in the software, we had a dropdown option of 1, 2, or 3 passes. But, we could manually enter more passes.
This appears to no longer be an option. And I would love to know if there was a good reason, because I want the option for more passes returned.
I am trying to do some tree shapes right now, and those have some intricate work along the edges. If I cut at higher powers, then these just burn away. So my normal approach is low power with a MASSIVE number of passes. Takes forever to cut, but looks great at the end.
Right now, I have to pay attention to when a job runs/finishes, then re-upload the whole design so I can push the button again.
Having a “repeat last job” option which bypasses upload would help. But having the ability to ask for 20 passes (or however many) would also be nice to have back.
There’s still a multiple pass option in the manual settings interface. What I do is select the PF option I want first, then click on the manual setting option. When it opens, it should have the PF option setting you selected. You can then adjust them as you please. Be careful though, there’s been a few times that the PF settings did NOT transfer to the manual interface as they should have. If they don’t, just try again and he setting will likley transfer. Just don’t forget to double check to make sure.
One note regarding editing the number of passes: when you click on the box you get a popup with only three choices (1, 2, or 3). Overriding those choices is a little tricky - I backspace over whatever number is currently in the box, type in the new number, then left-click in the box - hitting the enter key will revert the number back to 1, 2 or 3.
Hrm… thought I had tried the clicking out and it failed to work for me, but I was on a tablet and trying to use touchscreen controls, so may not have managed to do it properly. I had also been getting the “No Results Found” and whenever I left the manual typing it reverted to 3.
But, now it is working for me while at a desktop machine. Still be nice to have it less hack-specific to perform.
