BUG IM 3.1.7 Travel Through Holes

Postby rrroonn » Sun Oct 28, 2018 12:51 am

Hi, I would like to see the following fixed to improve the user experience and the resultant quality of the output. Hopefully it will not be a difficult thing to do.

Bug Report
Title: Travel Through Holes - unwanted side-effects
Description: Using the setting "Avoid Travelling Through Holes" [Other ] has an unexpected side-effect. If this option is enabled, then it also disables almost all filament retractions which can lead to serious oozing throughout the print. Not travelling through holes is a great feature to have, but it should not come at the expense of retractions. As there already is a "Enable Retraction" [Extruder] option, that setting should be honoured regardless of whether "Avoid Travelling Through Holes" is enabled. I would consider this a bug.
Version: 3.1.7
Language: English
Operating System: Windows 10
GPU: Intel HD
32bit or 64bit: 64bit
Screen Resolution: 1920x1200
How to trigger: see description above
Expected result: Enabling or disabling the "Travel Through Holes" setting should only impact the head movements through or around holes and/or the object boundary.
Real Result: Enabling this option also disables retraction which leads to bad quality prints.
Attachment: none

You can try the latest version of ideaMaker. But for the retraction issue, you may need to disable the option for avoid retraction inside model.
