I removed all smoothing code from the mackerel firmware and then placed a piece of filament in the sensor. The reported width always fluctuates 0.11mm (3.20-3.09) Is there a way to improve this?

It's mentioned somewhere in this thread that the sample rate is 100hz but the output is only updated 1/sec. However when extruding (for example) 40mm/s then averaging those 40mm might mean that it is possible that a long piece of filament with a diameter larger then 3.1 will not be reported (averaged out) but when using that filament it will block the 3d printer extruder. Is it possible to improve the 1/s update rate?
