Bridging speed not only in percentage

Sat Jun 22, 2019 3:34 am

Hi. Why is it only possible to specify the bridging speed as a percentage of the print speed? That makes no sense. If my printer and or the filament only manage a speed for bridging of 30 mm/sec for example, that would be 50% at a print speed of 60 mm/sec. But if you now change the filament or the geometry of the part requires a different printing speed, then you have to recalculate the speed for the bridging every time. Please implement a possibility that we can choose other speeds than the normal print speed, always in absolute numbers, which are not dependent on the normal print speed. Thank you!

P.S.: same for overhangs

Thanks for your feature request! This could quite easily be a toggle which changes all of the speed inputs to exact values. I've documented this for our development team. I'll watch this thread for more user feedback.
