Save Transition Filament as infill instead

    Hey Shane, there is an Infill option in CANVAS under the Transitions tab:

     

    I'd also recommend this article: http://mm3d.co/filament-waste

    He's suggesting that when you have infill transition on that Canvas calculate that if you increase the infill % from, for example the 15% you have it set to up to 50% that it can only use infill transition and wont need transition tower.  Or maybe it only needs 15% for bottom half and then switches to 50% for upper half to make it work.

    Even in instances where all or most of the transition occurs within the model, a small transition tower would still be necessary in order to ping properly to check calibration. 

    If the amount of infill transition differs from layer to layer, the tower would still be created based on the layer with the lowest transition area. If we picture a pyramid, the transition tower would need to be large enough so that a complete transition can occur at the top of the model without any bleed or print quality issues.
