Slicing Error


Recommended Posts

Posted · Slicing Error

With some printers (eg with a bowden tube) and materials (eg more flexible), when extruding material there will be a built-up pressure, which means that if the printer stops extruding there will still be residual pressure causing material to be extruded from the nozzle. Coasting tries to “use up” that residual pressure.

    Interesting. I am assuming there are no roundabouts for the setting (on Cura)? I was getting good prints with it but I should be able to make a few retraction changes to get the same results.

    Thank you, I appreciate the response.
