How can I get CURA to do retraction for this model?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How can I get CURA to do retraction for this model?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to slice this model in CURA 2.7 (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:49612). But it won't perform some the retraction needed no matter what settings I change.

Is anyone able to successfully slice this model with proper retraction?

Thanks.

You mean like this:

Set Retraction Minimum Travel to a small amount (e.g. 1mm).

Thanks for trying out.

Thats strange. As you can see from the screenshot, it doesn't work for me even if I set it to 0 already. Maybe I need to try erase all the legacy profiles and reinstall.

I would try to open all the commands/UI options to see the ones that are visible in smartavionics image. They may play a role as well. Note: This is just a suggestion as I am not sure.

Yeah I found the one causing this issue to be "minimun retraction distance window". The default 6.5mm is preventing retraction for the columns. The filament diameter also affect how the this value affects retraction.
