Material-specific cooling and other parameter?

Mon Jul 08, 2019 6:28 am

Is there any documentation that shows what parameters can be included under the <autoConfigureMaterial> XML node?

When using a dual extruder with very different materials, you need to have bridging parameters and cooling set by material.
<fanSpeed>
<setpoint layer="1" speed="0"/>
<setpoint layer="2" speed="100"/>
</fanSpeed>
<blipFanToFullPower>0</blipFanToFullPower>
<adjustSpeedForCooling>1</adjustSpeedForCooling>
<minSpeedLayerTime>5</minSpeedLayerTime>
<minCoolingSpeedSlowdown>20</minCoolingSpeedSlowdown>
<increaseFanForCooling>0</increaseFanForCooling>
<minFanLayerTime>45</minFanLayerTime>
<maxCoolingFanSpeed>100</maxCoolingFanSpeed>
<increaseFanForBridging>0</increaseFanForBridging>
<bridgingFanSpeed>100</bridgingFanSpeed>

and

<minBridgingArea>50</minBridgingArea>
<bridgingExtraInflation>0</bridgingExtraInflation>
<bridgingExtrusionMultiplier>1</bridgingExtrusionMultiplier>
<bridgingSpeedMultiplier>1</bridgingSpeedMultiplier>
<useFixedBridgingAngle>0</useFixedBridgingAngle>
<fixedBridgingAngle>0</fixedBridgingAngle>
<applyBridgingToPerimeters>1</applyBridgingToPerimeters>

Can I:
  • place these parameters under a named note (e.g. <extruder name="Right Extruder">) ?
  • create a named XML node (e.g. <materialspecificnode name="Right Extruder"> </materialspecificnode> ?

Any advice /hints appreciated
