Extrusion Delay compensation

Recommended Posts

I browsed the forum a bit trying to find out whether it is possible to account for a time delay in extrusion.

This is different from just retracting / priming the filament by some mm as time delay compensation accounts for viscosity-defined time delays and those due to compression/relaxation of the filament in the bowden extruders.

It would be nice to set two delay times

1.) Advanced start (start / prime the extruder stepper XX milliseconds before actually required)

2.) Advanced stop (stop / retract the extruder stepper YY milliseconds before actually required)

Is this currently possible? Would this be a feature to implement in Cura?

Thanks for your feedback.

    • "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.
