Extra Retraction at Start

Recommended Posts

Can someone explain why I am getting an extra retraction command right before my skirt starts? When I print, the filament doesn't print for sometime because of the extra retraction. I have tried it in both 3.4.1 and 3.5. Maybe I have a setting that is checked or set wrong. Below is my gcode from 3.5.0

Hi @DHQidiTech1, it is caused by the nozzle switch retraction distance being set to 16 in your profile. If I set it to 0 then you get the following:

The retraction/prime now cancel each other out.

 

Whether this is a bug or just the normal expected behaviour I cannot say as I only have experience with single extruder printers.

 

Hope this helps.
