Why I love KISSlicer: Reason #8

By Michael Hackney Monday, October 30, 2017
Why I love KISSlicer reason #8 can be stated with two simple words; fractional loops. You can read my blog post KISSlicer 1.6: Fractional Loops - Lunacy or Brilliance? to get the details on what they are and how to use them. They are brilliant. Fractional loops help you print stronger/more rigid parts without paying a significant time penalty. They just work. So well, in fact, that I rarely don't use fractional loops.

Just to refresh your memory, here is an example of a part without fractional loops (top) and with fractional loops. Note how the alternating loops lock both sides of the infill. This is what increases part strength and rigidity.
