Feature Request - Corner Flow Rate

Posted · Feature Request - Corner Flow Rate

I make a lot of things with corners and pretty much never have them come out perfectly square. I've tried adjusting a million things, just never happens. It's usually not terrible, but still noticeable. 

 

So, why not just have a simple flow change for the corner?

 

You could have a "flow percentage" attribute and maybe a "start distance" attribute for when you want the percentage to change? Like how many mm from the corner you want the flow change to take affect?

 

Maybe there's more to it than I realize, but this seems like it could be an easy fix to an issue that can be rather frustrating.

    Hi @gibsonmo711 that sounds like a neat feature.. 
    You would need to request it on our development github though to ensure your request is seen by the Dev Team though.
    Here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues

    Though what your describing sounds like Pressure Advance or Linear Advance.. which is firmware setting not slicer setting depending on the firmware you are running on your Printer.
    UltiMaker 3D Printers don't currently support this, though various 3rd party 3D Printers do.
