Combing or retract, both ?

Hi,

(I'm French, sorry for my english)

Printer info : Bowden extruder.

I'm currently slicing with 2.3 Beta, while combing option is enabled I've a side effect on large pieces : While traveling long distances tiny droplets of plastic are drop along the path, when the nozzle arrive at its printing destination there's not enought pressure so I'm in under-extrusion for the next move.

I tried to find my way by disabling the combing option and use retraction instead for moves over printed parts, but there's too many retractions in a short time.

Is there a way to have something between these 2 options, like enabling combing, but force retraction when travel move is over a certain distance in mm ?

let's bring back this topic, so still no improvement from cura about this problem ? :(

combing lack of option is still problematic for long bowden extruder.

Or maybe something like prime after a long combing move ?

Or if combing is off, cancel retraction under a certain distance IF the move doesn't cross the outer wall.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
