How to force retracts for ALL travel moves?

Recommended Posts

Combing is when travelling on places already (or will be) printed in the same layer


Did you try these settings ?




I think they will be a good compromise between quality and speed (retraction is time consuming, z hop movements as well)

There is also now a Max Comb Distance With No Retract setting that when set to a non-zero value, all combing moves longer than that distance will use retraction (but not z-hop). So this gives you the ability to comb short distances and retract for long distance travel.


This sounds perfect! If I understand correctly, it will retract "while" combing? And this is available in the current release of Cura? I'm away from my PC right now but I'm excited to check ASAP.

    • "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.
