No retraction on travle inside the print (wall to wall)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I messed around with the settings for quite a while now and tried to find a solution for my problem but was not able to. My top and bottom layers turn out good with one problem. When there is a hole in the model that goes all the way through (or penetrates the top/bottom layer) the walls are printed first and it travels from the outer wall to the wall of the hole without retraction. This causes problems on the bottom layer as seen here:

The picture show the bottom of the bottom layer and due to no retraction, the surface lays on a thin string. On the top layer i get similar issues because there is no retraction move, there is also no z-hopping causing the nozzle to slide across the surface and leaving a visible mark.

It's worth to mention that if the nozzle travels on an air gab (between two pillars for example) it does actually retract and i get no stringing what so ever.

Thanks in advance for your help.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
