Flying extruder?

  • Has anyone experimented with a flying extruder on their smart effector? I'm currently using this on my piezo based effector without problem, but I'm wondering if there's anything special about the stress gauge approach that might be affected by the upwards pull of a flying effector.

    You might need to increase the recovery time (R parameter) in the M558 command if the flying extruder tends to bounce around after a travel move, but other than that I can't see why it wouldn't work. A steady upwards pull will be ignored by the on board electronics and firmware. What it's looking for is a sudden change in the forces on the PCB.
