I wathched a violin masterclas video the other day in which the teacher showed how to do arpeggios on one string, playing the first note then lifting the finger completely before putting it down for the next note all the way to the top of the fingerboard, he said to practice this from different starting points on each string. I have been trying this out for the last week and feel it is improving my intonation, just wondered what others on here feel about this exercise and if they have tried it, benefits and such like. And if there are any similarto this one.

I think anything you do all the way up each string benefits intonation!
I'd still want to check against a tuner on these types of exercises - with my luck, I'd play something off and have it stuck in my head wrong... forever. (lol)
Even though I'm not a big scales fan, I still like "1 finger scales". Use only 1 finger at a time, up as far as you can go on each string, then repeat with your next finger, etc...
...my fingers are thinking the same thing!
