Custom Profiles: Spurs

    Spurs are single-walled sections of objects -- places where the outlines are so close together that they take the form of a single line of extrusion. 



    When "doExtrnalSpurs" is set to "true," the settings below will be used to create single walls where necessary. If you set "doExternalSpurs" to "false," sections of your object that are so thin that they require only a single extrusion width will not print at all. 



    Internal spurs are spurs that appear inside the outlines of your object. Sections of a print that narrow to a point will often result in internal spurs on inner shells. When "doInternalSpurs" is set to "true", segments of single extrusion width will be used to fill the gaps between two shells where possible. 

    NOTE: The "doInternalSpurs" feature is experimental.

    "maxSpurWidth" / "minSpurWidth"


    These settings allow you to specify when spurs will be used. Spurs will not be used for sections wider than the "maxSpurWidth" or more narrow than the "minSpurWidth". Sections wider than the "maxSpurWidth" will accommodate multiple extrusion widths. Sections narrower than the "minSpurWidth" will not be printed.



    Spur segments that are shorter than the value defined in this setting will be eliminated from the final toolpath.



    This setting allows spurs that almost touch to join by extending them by the amount set here.
