    That's odd, I had a play with it yesterday too! (then gave up), but I found the Deltaprintr did not heat up, even when setting the temp in the wizard. I do run on a Mac so it may work ok on a PC.

    I was going to see if I could figure out the variable layer height stuff.

    The supports created are not just vertical they touch the build plate then slope over to the area that needs support (still adjusting settings so PETG support releases from the part).

    The variable layer height works awesome but I tried to push the min layer height to .05mm and that just muddled up the surface.

    The 3d honeycomb infill is nice too.

    Being able to make all adjustments, then slice instead of slice everyone you adjust is awesome. Slicing on big parts is much much faster as well.
