Control the Blob?

Recommended Posts

Is there a setting in Cura to control the initial blob?  Like 'squirt the blob for N seconds' or something?

 

I would like to control the squirt so that the blob is only extruded for half the current amount of time/blob.

 

Thanks!

 

Mike

There is no setting in Cura at the moment. Only the option to enable or disable it. 

What you can do is change the python script on your ultimaker 3 to do as you like. More information regarding the blob and how to change this can be found here: Prime blob knocked down

Thanks very much for the ideas.

 

Bummer.  Well, hopefully in the future... man will have options to control the blob!

 

More specifically, I hope Cura enables more options to control the blob in the future (like squirt for N seconds, etc.).

 

I will have to try without the blob to see what it does.

 

 

Thanks again.
