I need to find some formula to handle my issue related to the extruder.

Recommended Posts

Dear all

In general, When I tried to print the line , it always have a lot of materials in the last point position. So I want to handle that, it's mean i will prevent the material flowing out by the stopping extruder. Because when i stop the extruder , it always has a little bit material still flowing out. That's the reason the last point position always bigger than the rest. So i need to find the formula based on the extrude speed , print speed to find the position for stopping extruder.

Example: I already print the line with the length is 20mm. the following figure will be shown my problem.

Thank you in advance

      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.
