Variable Retraction Distance

Recommended Posts

Posted · Variable Retraction Distance

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.
