This is a guide on adding a configuration to your slicing settings that will add wiping during long silver traces in a layer.
When printing a part with many silver features on a layer, silver can start to collect on the syringe tip. This can lead to clumps of silver falling into the part, and can also cause very narrow traces to be printed too wide. Consider adding this Config, which will increase the number of wipe commands inserted within a silver layer. The value shown is the length of silver that will be printed before a wipe is inserted. Lowering the value will result in more frequent wiping.
We recommend testing this on short prints to see how it affects your individual prints.
See this article for more detailed information about adding configurations.
- Log into dashboard, and click on the 'Configs' option at the top of the window.
Notes about this particular config: wipe commands will only be inserted when the silver retracts between areas of silver. A wipe command would not be inserted in the middle of a large patch of infill, even if the wipe after distance is exceeded.
