  1. Thanks. Shortest and sharpest corner are both fixed Z lines like user specified. If i pick random it creates alot of travel moves. Is there a way to nudge it a bit every layer without creating travel moves? Like with "wipe nozzle" on simplify3d I can wipe nozzle on Cura too but it stays on the same point.
  2. Hi. I want to slice a cylinder with Cura but i don't want all my layers to start at the same straight Z line. How am i gonna to achieve that ?
  3. Hi. I just got a Ender 3 and a roll of PLA and i got started printing. Still haven't figure out if Simplify3D or Cura is better for me, i like that Cura has many settings but i just CANT'S FIGURE OUT HOW TO CONFIGURE THE RETRACTION FOR MY PRINTER IN CURA! In Simplify3D i have set 4.5mm retraction distance and 80mm/s retraction speed and i get PERFECT results on basic retraction test https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2563909/ This is the Gcode from Simplify3D G1 X109.916 Y118.703 E273.06705 G0 F3600 X109.902 Y119.729 ;LAYER:38 G1 F4800 E268.56705 ;RETRACT G0 F3600 X109.916 Y101.297 Z6.000 ;JUMP ;TYPE:WALL-OUTER G1 F4800 E273.06705 ;PUSH On Cura with those settings the results are a disaster. This is the Gcode from Cura ;TYPE:SKIN G1 F600 X110.143 Y99.866 E59.23949 G1 F4800 E54.73949 ;RETRACT ;MESH:NONMESH G0 F600 X110.143 Y99.866 Z7.4 G0 F9000 X111.315 Y101.715 G0 X112.147 Y120.292 ;JUMP G0 X112.018 Y120.797 G0 X111.756 Y121.275 G0 X111.382 Y121.672 G0 X110.924 Y121.963 G0 X110.631 Y122.057 G0 X110.084 Y122.151 G0 X109.971 Y120.39 ;TIME_ELAPSED:223.202764 ;LAYER:36 ;TYPE:WALL-INNER ;MESH:CE3_Retraction.3mf G1 F4800 E59.23949 ;PUSH I know that with different settings like 6mm distance and 25mm/s speed Cura gives much better results but they are not PERFECT. How can i fix that so Cura outputs the same Gcode as Simplify3D so i won't have stringing ???
