Feature Request: Linear Advance

Recommended Posts

Nope.

 

Linear Advance isn't a new idea. There where attempts at it back in 2014 or so. But getting it to work really properly in all situation is hard, the bowden style UM printers make it even harder.

 

Currently, we are actually hitting performance limits in the motion controller already (something we are investigating and improving), making it more complex will not help on this area. And will most likely make high detailed prints look worse instead of better.

    • "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.
