Explain Coasting and when to use it?

Recommended Posts

I noticed the beta has the ability to coast and I don't quite understand how that works.

Could someone explain that beyond the brief description in Cura (beta)? I'm really intrigued to know when you would want OR not want to use that option (Pros and Cons)

Thanks!

A great simple explanation on the colorfab ngen page

 

Coasting is a nice option included in Simplify. This is the act of stopping the extrusion just before a travel move is triggered, this helps get rid of the pressure in the hot-end and therefor also making a retraction move more effective.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
