Contour Operation

A contour operation is made up of one or more paths that are able to vary width, thicknessstiffness, and viscosity in one pass, as set in the Voxel8 plugin.

A contour prints at the print height of the path(s) as set in the scene or commanded by height shift parameter, and can span multiple heights in one pass when the path is modeled to do so in the scene, in which case geometric parameters are set as a function of Z in the plugin.

Both open and closed shapes can be added as paths to a contour operation.
