The opposite of max resolution..?


Recommended Posts

Posted · The opposite of max resolution..?

I am working with a mixing nozzle. I am using Curas ability to setup virtual tools with varying mixes of colour. Good so far. I have written a python script to post process files and apply virtual tool changes depending where the nozzle is in 3d space. At the moment, I can only do this when there is a G0 or G1 command in the output from CURA. The problem comes on long straight lines where there is only a G0 or G1 at the start and end of the line. Now, before I go writing more post processing code, is there a way to force CURA to split long straight line segments into shorter ones? Max deviation does not work as my surface may be flat (top of cylinder say) and so all segments are internal and not affected by deviation. Max resolution, appears to do the opposite of what I want and attempt to lengthen segments on curves.


So, is there a way to tell CURA to split long line segments at some resolution (every mm would be ideal).


Wont be useful for speedbenchies but for artistic effect this would be very useful.
