Retractations

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.

Hi @J3J3, if possible, please attach your project file so I can explore this for you, thanks!

Thanks for the project files. Are  you sure this is for the same project as shown in your images above, the time and filament usage is completely different?

No, it's another random STL, but the problem occurs with all STLs

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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
