Extruder feedrates

The extruder feed rate is given for each X,Y,Z LINE movement. Is that the value at the maximum speed rate of the head? Since all axes are moving the head is moving at

sqrt (Xspeed ^2 + Yspeed^2 + Zspeed^2) So shouldn't this be proportional to the Feed rate and also the Edistance? I don't see any correlation of this from the Gcode generated by CURA. Has anyone seen any example firmware code for controlling the Extruder Motor?

The extruder can also be moved when X,Y,Z motion is off independent of them.

    there will be others who can share a lot more then me on how it all works but In the firmware there is a bowden tube length which is added into the mix.

    there is also something which adjusts the extruder while accelerating and decelerating but i'm not sure if this is implemented.

    You can adjust coasting before retracts in 2.XX cura though.

    I'm not sure if i fully understand your question... but i think you're on the right track.

    The generated gcode is only a request to move the axis along a line segment with the specified feedrate. And it's the task of the firmware to decide how to achieve this.

    For Marlin firmware all the relevant calculations are done by the planner. There is also a separate documentation project with some basic informations.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
