Retraction for the same layer

Recommended Posts

I am filling in a plain rectangle to make a flat surface

Instead of starting in one corner and filling in in one go to the opposite corner Cura leaves a triangle behind, fills in to the far end then comes back to fill in the triangle.

If it has to do that - is it possible to retract, lift then come back to finish the triangle?

I always get a string across an otherwise perfect surface.

Am I missing a trick?

NB, there is no layer change - it retracts between layers OK. This is all on one layer.

If there is a hole in the surface I get many more strings all on the same layer.

If I write text I get retraction and no strings between letters all for the same layer number.

This behaviour has been fixed and I thought that 2.7 incorporated the changes, could you please post a link to the gcode?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
