Filling shapes improved


The last days I have massively improved the order in which shapes are filled: StitchBuddy had issues with objects stacked in stitch direction.

These objects need to be filled one after the other like hatching a drawing. StitchBuddy was applying the filling left to right for the first segment, returning for the second etc. This was causing a lot of needle movements back and forth, including required jump stitches.

StitchBuddy 3.1.2 is now considering connected areas, finishing one segment before starting the next. This reduces jump stitches and results in a much more consistent filling order.

Please watch this video which illustrates the difference between both ways by simulating the stitch out of an old (red) filling compared to a new (green) one:
