Retract while coast / un-retract while move

Sun Mar 06, 2016 11:31 am

I'm having a hard time to get rid of blobs at layer change (due to the pause it makes), wiping and doing a retract while wipe does improve it a little, but it's still not perfect, and wipe will create some visible damage to some pieces.

2 greate features would be:

- Retract while coast
- And un-retract while move : the unretract move happens while the print head moves after a retraction over a specified distance.

Thanks,
David.

An older feature but I vote for it -

Also - Retract towards infill instead of along the perimiter would help also!

Definitely need this one, that would get rid of the pauses that cause blobs..

If I don't retract it gets messy, so I retract (5mm 100mm/s because bowden -.-) and that takes some time and that creates a blob on the spot where retraction is occuring

I'm also for this feature.

I'm developing this hardware and this software feature would be the final piece for a clean multi color print.
