Before I left work on Friday, I started a 50+hr print of a prototype part I am working on.  I spent a lot of time updating all my settings since I was using MH Pro filaments and I really wanted this thing to be a good show piece.  So Monday morning I roll into work to find this:

After writing up a very long post in the HELP section, I started listing all my settings just in case someone noticed something out of place.  But no worries, I found the problem:

For some odd reason, I unchecked the retraction button.  A facepalm moment if ever there was one...

 

(the PVA is a bit old, hence the underextrusion you see towards the end of the print)
