Retraction on my second ultimaker ??

Recommended Posts

Morning !

When I use my office ultimaker, and use retraction, it does not matter if it is the smallest details, it will jump no problem.

But when i try turning on retraction at home with all the same settings, i get massive treading between solid parts and also the quality of the smooth surfaces like walls dont get enough material and to be honest look.... sh..... :-(

i have setup both ultimakers exactly the same, so i dont really understand why retraction would be so badly failing on the home printer. :-(

any ideas guys ?

Ian :D

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
