Explain Coasting and when to use it?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Explain Coasting and when to use it?

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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
