Variable Retraction Distance

Recommended Posts

I wanted to offer up a feature request: variable retraction distance. (mm filament retract / mm rapid move)

I think this would help the printer avoid tripping up in areas with many, short, retracted rapids. Instead of having to disable retracts for short hops, it would still make an attempt, but never to the extent that it would delay the rapid.

Thoughts?

No one else has an opinion?

Ooze is definitely time dependant, and since rapid travel speeds are fixed and known, you can just evaluate the length of the rapid move, and apply a variable retract distance which ensures the retract move is completed within the rapid move.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
