How to change G-Code Flavor - and why?

Recommended Posts

Using Cura 3.4.1 I seem to have lost the ability to show quite a number of items in preferencies. Specifically, I want to be more precise on Retraction distances but, in the information in Configure/Preferences I am told that it can't be shown because of the vlues in my G-Code Flavor. I am asked to change values in this flavour, but I can't find any sign of where I do this.

 

The reason I'm asking is that I seem to be stuck with a Retraction default of 4.5 mm on my UM2 which seems to be producing some unwanted stringing. I want to experiment with some different retraction differences.

in Cura: "Settings -> Printer -> Manage Printers... -> Machine Settings"

In this case you can use the default gcode flavor ("Ultimaker") and "TUNE" the retraction settings (distance and speed) directly on the printer (during printing). Wouldn't this be much easier, as you want to experiment anyway?

      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.
