Prime after Destring?

Prime after Destring?

Postby ImpulsiveJames » 11 Jun 2018, 19:45

Hi, I absolutely love the software!!!!

Is there a way to add an additional prime after destring/retract? I'm running a bowden setup and I don't think it forces the material out quite enough material after a retract. I believe the function exists in Slic3r, under retraction "Extra Length on Restart". I thought Kisslicer had a similar setting, but can't find it since the upgrade.

No, there used to be separate destring push and suck options, but since Preload was introduced, there is only a single destring value.

Theoretically, if Preload is set correctly, destring value should be zero, but in practice, you still need a destring value to take up the slack in the hardware (I use 2.5mm for my Bowden MMU and 0.25mm for direct drive).

We may see a return of the separate values in V2, but we may not. I believe the theory is that both push and suck should be the same; if they are not, then you have a problem in your hardware.
