Filament grinding when retracting

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am having problems getting my new UM3 print models with medium to large amount of retractions.

I slice using Cura 2.4.

The same model prints fine on a UM2+, sliced with Cura 1.5 ( latest update)

When looking at the filament I can see a 2 cm long stretch where the extruder have flattened it.

I have tried with Torwall, colorfabb and ultimaker filament with the same result.

I have tried the settings in Cura 2.4 that reduce the number of retractions allowed but that makes the stringing unacceptable.

regards,

/Lars

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
