Retracting Not Working in 3.6 or 4,

Recommended Posts

Hello i am using a Robo R1+ printer and i am trying to get the Retraction working but i am having no luck. i have tried almost all of the settings in Cura 3.6 but nothing will make the material retract. i thought maybe it was the marlin software but then i tried Cura 15 then all of the sudden BOOM the material retraction worked, but the prints were not turning out good and there are not as many options as i would like... so back to cura 3.6 i tried updating to 4 but still nothing. the strange thing is i can get the Z hop to work but the material doesn't retract so it just leaves a blob every time it goes up. retract settings attached. any ideas?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
