Extrusion Delay compensation

Posted (edited) · Extrusion Delay compensation

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.
