Relative Extrusion and Firmware Retraction in MatterSlice

Postby 3D-Print » Wed May 04, 2016 4:50 pm

I have been looking for a checkbox or something which will allow me to slice in MatterSlicer using relative (M83) vs absolute extrusion.

As well, I am also looking for a way to slice such that I can use firmware retraction vs. retractions set up in MatterSlicer?

Thanks,

FYI per ryan.lutz at MatterHackers

Extrusion is hard-coded into MatterControl as using absolute. You could change this if you were to edit the code and re-compile, but that's up to you.

MatterSlice does not support firmware retraction. We're open to the idea of supporting it in the future, but would need a compelling reason to do so.
