Ooze Shield Crossing - Dual Extruder Feature Request

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

First I would like to thank you for such great software.

 

In setting up and reviewing my latest print project I was reviewing the travel paths when using Ooze Shield to see where and when each nozzle passes over the shield to optimize for best print results. I found I had to estimate where each nozzle wiped (or passed over) the actual print and the shield, therefore setting shield offset as best estimation.

 

Can a simple display feature (marker) be added to show where each nozzle commonly passes over the print or shield?

 

For a dual extruder arrangement, in machine settings we enter nozzle offsets, so if that is taken into account, the shield offset will determine where each nozzle passes over the top.

The image attached shows paths, but not which nozzle (material) crossover point, then had potential for contaminating the other material.

 

The goal is to minimize crossover points or choose specific location for crossing over. This feature will definitely help selecting best shield offset, and/or potentially some other settings.

 

Thank you.

    • "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.
