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
