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.
