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.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
