No Retraction with 2nd use extruder on first layer

Posted · No Retraction with 2nd use extruder on first layer

I am having an issue with my Ultimaker 3 whereby whichever extruder is activated 2nd does not retract on the first layer and makes lines all over. In the example below I used Cura 3.6.0 and mostly default settings. The Pink (Extruder #2) activates first to draw the skirt and then does all the pink letters and hearts while retracting properly. Then the Black activates and after making the prime blob, drags a line to the skirt. [I have found: WHICHEVER EXTRUDER ACTIVATES SECOND, DRAGS THIS LINE...SOMETIMES DRAGGING THE PRIME BLOB WITH IT AND RUINING THE PRINT] . Then as the black material moves from one spot to the next, it drags an ugly black line across the pink. How do I stop this from happening? I have tried turning Combing Mode to 'Not in Skin' and to 'Within Infill' and the problem persists. I have not tried turning Combing Mode off yet because it would add extend the print job from 6 hours to 8 hours. Any other suggestions?

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
