I had the same issue recently running a large channel from PETG. The nozzle would traverse from one tip to the other and the ooze during the traverse would leave blobs on the receiving leg.wermy wrote:It would be very nice if this option could be tweaked so that the travel movements actually took place outside of the outline rather than along it.
If you want to move up, there is already an option in the extruder tab labeled "retraction vertical lift". If you're using that option you likely don't need to avoid crossing the outline at all.brampie wrote: Hi,
Any news on this ?
It would be very usefull to me, I have a filament that does not like retraction that much.
Maybe it's easier (to program for the developers) to add the function to simply move up while doing the move ?
For my I think this stand in the way of excellent print quality, the whole part looks nice but you can see very well where that nozzle has passed to avoid crossing the air.
Any workarounds for this ?
I believe the designed intention in your screenshot was for the travels to move along the existing perimeter until it's at the closest point before needing to cross. Meaning that the shortest travel possible will be used once the nozzle needs to cross the outline. As for it being unnecessarily complicated, that's really not something this feature has an opinion on. It takes the path along the perimeter to the point closest to the next printing location.zzjlamb wrote: ↑Sat Apr 11, 2020 9:51 pmNot only does the travel follow the outer perimeter, but the path seems unnecessarily complicated. I've attached a screenshot of a travel path to illustrate, and the corresponding part of the print. You can see that because the travel goes around a tight corner, the string goes outside the outline because it doesn't stick to the model. This wouldn't happen if the travel path was more direct. Also it would shorten the print time.
How is the feature request for travel along inner perimeters or infill going?
Hello,I'll continue to monitor this thread for more user interest.
