Posted · Retraction on my second ultimaker ??

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

    Have you tried printing on your UM at home with the same filament as you are using at work?

    Plus 1 to this tip. I had lots of strange behavior with a couple of spools I got from Ultimaker. So far, I'm not having any trouble with filament from Ultimachine.
