Hi Thomllama, could you share a screenshot of what settings you have enabled for retraction? Does this happen all the time, or just with this specific model?

It can be that your mesh has a lot of vertices at some locations in your mesh.

As a quick fix, you could run it through an online repair tool and see if that changes anything.

Good luck!

I would, but I actually deleted Cura 2.3. gone back to 1x.x.x cuz it just works.. I do like 2. better for options being all in one list instead of 3 locations ( basic one, advanced 2 and expert in a 3rd location/window)  

but retraction setting were all stock.. near changed a thing..

It does do it to every model I slice in 2.3  -      it's a pretty simple model right out of Fusion 360.. which again.. older Cura has zero issues with.  nothing is broken in the file as the Mac's viewer shows it fine (Mac's will black out an STL with issue when you view it in Preview)

the one in front is Cura 15.x.x. the one in the back with the lines missing here and there are Cura 2.3

Netfabb no longer works as the got bought out or some such thing.. never figured it out anyway.

    Is your Combing setting is enable ?

    And try with Zig Zag infil.

    This two options schould fix your issue.

    Combing was enabled

    Not sure what Zig Zag would do as it's when printing the border.. but worth a try.

    so just reloaded Cura 2.3.1. seems the combing setting does help! not enough time to print before going off to work but the display in Octoprint seems to show better movements. Guess I didn't have it on before..

    OK.. it's still using WAY to many retractions with 2.3.1.  combing doesn't seem to help here.  the bottom area in the image is just supports.. seems the older Cura understands this where 2.3 doesn't?  or something?   5a33242704612_ScreenShot2016-11-25at6_01_56PM.thumb.png.54f92a169c67bb9101033b3001935f9c.png5a3324272b6db_ScreenShot2016-11-25at6_02_13PM.thumb.png.c22d0c314c6e82dab66210092b679d14.png

    Oh about support there is a bug in the Cura 2 version.

    I'de already open a topic about that. The team said that the bug will be fixed (partially) in the next release.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.
