Using coasting ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Using coasting ?

Is anyone using Coasting on their profiles for a Ultimaker printer ?, and if so have you adjusted the outer wall wipe distance as a consequence ?

I use it occasionally when printing CPE/PETG to avoid the zits, but when I use it, then I just enable it without any fine-tuning.

Coasting replaces the last part of an extrusion path by a travel move. This way excess pressure is released from the nozzle, thus decreasing the chance of material leaking from the nozzle while traveling. Too much combing can however lead to under extrusion as the pressure inside the nozzle drops during the travel move.

agree, yes i have it enabled for PETG, and like you at the defaults. I was considering messing with it for PLA for example, but more out of interest than i think it will actually be a good idea :), i guess i just want to tinker..... 🙂, i have heard mixed reviews for materials other than PETG

 

thanks

Give it a try, but for PLA the result may be different and you really have to tune some parameters.

 

If you tinker with it, please share your experiences here.
