Cura 3.0.3 retraction problem.


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura 3.0.3 retraction problem.

While trouble shooting my ongoing retraction problem in Cura 3.0.3 I noticed all of the G1 lines, shown below that do not contain an E value. I also noted all of the G0 lines generated to traverse to the next location where extrusion is needed. What is the reason these lines are generated? All of the G10 & G11 lines are present in the program but the extruder does not retract the filament. I have tried .5 to 5.5 mm retract distance and 25 to 55 mm/s speed.

    Posted · Cura 3.0.3 retraction problem.

    I am also having a large amount of stringing problems on my Ultimaker 3 using Cura 3.03 and Cura 3.04 that was not occurring with the last version of 2.x. I think that this may be a retraction issue. I am going back to 2.x until the dust settles.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
