Only Coast When Crossing Open Spaces

Thu Mar 29, 2018 9:27 pm

I think we should have the ability to Only Coast When Crossing Open Spaces, here's why:

S3D currently has Only Retract When Crossing Open Spaces, but usually retraction is good to prevent too much ooze even when printing the solid portion of the part to keep the current layer relatively flat for the next layer; however if Coast is turned on to 0.1 mm or higher during retraction to prevent stringing when crossing open spaces, then too many retractions result in pot holes where there is underextrusion due to the cumulative effect of too many 0.1 mm Coasts.

Only turning on Coast when crossing open spaces will improve the ability to eliminate strings on parts while eliminating underextrusion even when Coast is set relatively high.
