Breaking segments is visible in a single wall print- most likely where you are printing a large object with a big flat face (hence why the segment would be long). It's just not a plan. Please tell me this will not be enabled by default in Ideamaker as that would wreak havoc with current owners. In other words, a menu and to enable it warns the user of potential issues, disabled by default and requires a conscience user action to enable. Again, I'd have trouble telling anyone that's a good workaround. Instant pause has problems too, cannot happen in the middle of a segment unless there is some serious low level code happening in the motion planner. Bottom line is for some prints, probably works fine and catches before you are actually out of filament and make a line without extruding. On the other hand, there are also absolutely prints that will run out before pause stops in time. You hope that's on infill and not the perimeter. Single wall vase mode- best of luck.
We have taken this issue into consideration before and have already tested several times. By now, we found that in most cases, only Raft and Vase Mode will be affected due to this. But actually the printing quality of Raft won’t affect the final printing result of the model a lot. And Vase Mode is not a such high-frequency printing mode in daily use. Since ideaMaker tends to output short commends by origin. So temporarily we will keep this which won’t affect common use. And meanwhile, we are working hard on instant pause which will be included into later firmware update to ensure it can cover all the issues.
