Over Extrusion after bridge walls


Recommended Posts

Posted · Over Extrusion after bridge walls
Hello All!
While doing some calibration prints today I noticed an odd effect of using "Experimental Bridge Settings". It seems as if Cura purposely over extrudes after the first bridge wall line. As this may be beneficial to introduce nominal back pressure into the nozzle after completing the bridge wall, it creates a bulge in the printed model for the following line segment. Are there any settings implemented in Cura to adjust for this added extrusion inserted after a bridge wall line? If not will this be addressed for later versions?
