How to limit combing distance ?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to stop combing travel across entire model perimeter (like half a meter) when it only needs about 50mm to get to where it needs to continue print ?

I cant disable combing, because retraction rate will be insane.

I cant decrease retraction because it will not retract where i need and using plugins doesnt solve anything since retraction is distance based no matter what you do.

Thanks !

Are you looking to pick up speed by avoiding the comb? Or are you worried about it affecting the print quality? I quite like the way cura performs combing with the retract while combing plugin enabled (with a relatively high 3mm or greater minimum distance for retract on the plugin).

If you're looking to pick up speed by skipping the combing moves, I dunno.
