My printer retracts twice before move


Recommended Posts

Posted · My printer retracts twice before move

Hello guys, I'am starting this thread because noticed that my printer does retraction twice, before traveling, it moves filament back and forward, back and forward. I found it realy odd, I think I never saw it doing that. Perhaps someone can help me figure out why its doing that and maybe how to fix it, its no big deal in simple models, but it doubles the time of retraction and for more complex models it adds quit bit of time. If someone can help, I would apriciate it. By the way my printer is Ender 3, but I doubt it has to do something with model.

    I am so sorry that I have to tell you that I already dove into this and found out that I had enabled retract before outer wall, and because i print so small things with so many walls that they fill etire model, it just seemed like it retracted twice, but it realy did just small move in between them, i feel so ashamed right now.
