minimum layer time -> optional lift head and wait

Sat Nov 11, 2017 7:22 am

I would love to see an option like Cura's "cool head lift" - basically if layer time is too short, even with slow printing, head should move away a little (some argue better Z than x/y to prevent blobs) retract (optionally) and pause the time needed to fulfill the minimum layer time.

This can be done by adding g-code on layer change, but that we would wait between each layer of that process, no matter if needed or not. In an ideal world, if I set 30 seconds for a very small island and minimum print speed at x, the wait time needed to minimum layer time should be added this way.

Thank you for considering

gcodestat integrates with Simplify3D and allow you to
Calculate print time accurately (acceleration, max speed, junction deviation all taken into consideration)
Embed M117 codes into G-Code
Upload your G-Code directly to Octoprint
open source and unlicence

what about the ooze from idle nozzle? 30 sec will ooze a lot.
