S5/S3 with Capricorn tubes retraction settings ?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · S5/S3 with Capricorn tubes retraction settings ?



I am finding that the default retraction settings of 6.5 distance and 25 speed for PLA to be too much for my S5 with capricorn bowden as each retraction is pulling in air, and consequently after every retraction there is the popping of the air bubbles and tiny holes in the print.


What have others done in terms of retraction settings with capricorn ? also is it best to adjust distance or speed to prevent pulling air in, assuming distance.
