Posted · Retract but with combing ON?

Hi there,


I know there are 3 types of travel options.

Combing ON

Combing OFF

No skin


Is it possible to retract but still the travel move be confined with-in the part?


Looking forward for your advice!


Thank you advance!

Hello @seriousCADninja, just arrived in the latest development version of Cura is a setting that lets you specify the max distance to comb without using retraction. For distances greater than that, it will still comb but will retract. Hopefully, it will be in the next release (3.4).

This is really useful!

Thank you! I am looking forward to try it out.

When is the new version getting released?

Also another question/ request.

The new cura is very powerful with many settings.

Can the UI (User interface) be configure that each setting heading (material, travel,...) is of a different color?

It will be more ergonomic to spot each section faster.

Thanks again!
