Not quite. It needs to be run multiple times, once for each filament type (and layer height?). And with firmware 1.1.5.xx, particularly on Mini 1.03 or earlier, the generated test script needs to be hand-edited to avoid problems introduced with 1.1.5.xx – otherwise, depending on the size of pattern selected, the generated script may print above the bed or crash into endstops.
This brings up something else, which is start gcode management. Cura 2.6 unifies the start gcode per printer, and there is no placeholder variable for K-factor. That means if using (for example) 6 different filaments that need different K-factors, then 6 “copies” of each printer need to be installed in Cura 2.6 so there can different start scripts (with different K-factor) for each filament. (Note: If Lulzbot proceeds with enabling Lin-Advance in firmware, they could easily add K-factor to the filament/quality settings, and use the placeholder variable to allow one unified script again.)
Already read that. All of those options were disabled before slicing.
I have to disagree somewhat with the “no extra movement” part of that. It is apparent, just from watching the extruder gears, that there is a LOT of extra acceleration/deceleration, even if it doesn’t result in more actual movement. Its visible and to some degree audible. If need for retraction is lessened, that would compensate for some of it I guess.
Not seeing it. I looked at the test cubes again this morning, with and without magnification, and can’t see any difference in the corners, or in the “lettering” on the sides (lots of direction changes there).
Agree – It may be that the short 20mm sides (which also have breaks for the lettering) just don’t give the toolhead time to accelelerate to a speed where LA really becomes beneficial. I’ll have to try a larger test when I get time… I have an Aerostruder coming today (should have been here yesterday, no-thanks-to-usps) – so also curious how LA will differ with it compared to the gearing and longer filament path of the Wade.
