No Skin Combing - Minimum Travel Distance

Recommended Posts

I like the 'No Skin' Combing' mode for Travel, but I have two suggestions for improvement:

1) Set a minimum travel distance for retraction on 'No Skin' combing. I feel it retracts way too much - often just to move the print head over to the next surface line. Being able to set a minimum travel amount before it retracts on a 'No Skin' comb would speed up prints while still eliminating those long nasty comb lines across the entire surface

2) Option to comb on only the surface skin: Currently 'No Skin' eliminates coming on all top and bottom layers, not just the outer ones. So if you have 3 top and 3 bottom layers, all six layers get the full 'no combing' treatment. This is great for translucent material, but colors like gray, black, etc. only need combing turned off on the first bottom layer and the last top layer.

Just some ideas.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
