Cura 3.0.3 retraction problem.

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
