Retractations

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
Can someone can help me with the settings in Cura.
I have exported and then imported my cura profile from 3.1.0 Beta to 3.3.1 and there is much more retractations.

OK, well I just loaded those two projects into the appropriate Cura versions and the total time is slightly less for 3.3. One has more travel time but less retraction time than the other. If you add the retraction and travel times together for each version of Cura, you will see that the results are very similar. I think the difference is simply how the time was added up?

I have tuned the profile on the version 3.1.0 to limit the retractations and in the newer versions there is more retractations and I don't know why.

But I'm agree, the overall time is more or less the same.

    • "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.
