Help with retraction !!!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Help with retraction !!!

Hi.

I just got a Ender 3 and a roll of PLA and i got started printing.

Still haven't figure out if Simplify3D or Cura is better for me, i like that Cura has many settings but i just CANT'S FIGURE OUT HOW TO CONFIGURE THE RETRACTION FOR MY PRINTER IN CURA!

 

In Simplify3D i have set 4.5mm retraction distance and 80mm/s retraction speed and i get PERFECT results on basic retraction test https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2563909/

This is the Gcode from Simplify3D

 

G1 X109.916 Y118.703 E273.06705

G0 F3600 X109.902 Y119.729

;LAYER:38
G1 F4800 E268.56705                         ;RETRACT
G0 F3600 X109.916 Y101.297 Z6.000 ;JUMP
;TYPE:WALL-OUTER
G1 F4800 E273.06705                         ;PUSH

 

On Cura with those settings the results are a disaster.

This is the Gcode from Cura

I know that with different settings like 6mm distance and 25mm/s speed Cura gives much better results but they are not PERFECT.

How can i fix that so Cura outputs the same Gcode as Simplify3D so i won't have stringing ???
