Retraction return options on extruder switch.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Retraction return options on extruder switch.

Hello,  

Is there an option to reduce the amount of filament return after a nozzle switch? ( i.e. If I retract 12mm when I switch to the other nozzle can I set it to only push 10mm when I switch back?)

Recently I've been having issues with filament jams when switch between extruders.  When I switch back to a nozzle I hear my extruder push back the 12mm I retracted but at the end I will usually hear my extruder skip once like its trying to over extrude.  This has mostly been while using polyalchemy filaments.  I love this filment but it does have a tendency to swell when retracted and I think this is causing the filament not to push as far back in till it get more heat.   I have experimented with manually pulling the filament back a few millimeters between switches and it seems to fix the problem.

 

Thanks

    • "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.
