BUG? Cura Post Processing Plugin Errors

Posted (edited) · BUG? Cura Post Processing Plugin Errors

I have an Ender 3 Pro and I have been experiencing trouble with multi color prints.


I've tried:

 

Pause at height: (retraction doesn't work in this case, is there a retraction limit? 30 works, but 300 doesn't)

 

Pause Layer: 10
Park Print Head X: 0
Park Print Head Y: 0
Retraction: 300
Retraction: Speed 50
Extrude amount: 50
Extrude Speed 3.3333    
Redo Layers: 0
Standby Temp: 0

 

Filament Change: (if you select layer 11 it will stop at layer 10 to change filament, just WHY? It also pushes filament OUT just before the initial retraction and creates a mess on the print)

 

Layer: 11 (I want to enter 10  because I wanted a change at 10)
Initial retraction: 30
Later Retraction Distance: 300
X Position: 0
Y Position: 0

 

One would think somebody else noticed these problems before me?

 

What am I doing wrong? I can't wrap my head around it.

 

EDIT:

I just tested new settings that print great, but I still have to retract the filament out by hand since the retraction doesn't work to 300.

 

Pause at height: 

 

Pause Layer: 10
Park Print Head X: 0
Park Print Head Y: 0
Retraction: 30
Retraction: Speed 50
Extrude amount: 100
Extrude Speed 3.3333    
Redo Layers: 0
Standby Temp: 0
