How to enable retracts everywere?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How to enable retracts everywere?

Hi, all.

I have found that Cura makes some travel movements without retract. For example, the movements between inner walls, between infill, etc. If the length of these movements too high, the nozzle is lost some amount of material and then I have not enough material when print begins.
I tried to set the minimal distance of travel movements without retract by parameter Retraction minimum travel, but found that this parameter cannot be visible in my settings because has been hidden by active machine (see screenshot). What it means and how to solve it?

Would somebody explaine how to set retract minimum travel distance and enable retract everywere but not only on outer wall?

You are searching for the "combing" option. Disable combing, and Cura will always retract and make straight travel moves. You can also let it enabled but set the max. distance without retract to a low, but non-zero value.

Yes, the combing mode is disabled. But no retcracts on the inner walls and infill.

This is all settings available for me in this section now.

Did you mean that I need enable it and set Max Comb Distance With No Retract low? As I understand this parameter not working without combing.

Hm, that's really strange... Cura still makes travel moves without retracting?

Yes. 

I thought that if I disable combing and set the Retraction minimum travel distance, I can control the retract. But this parameter is not available for me (see screenshots).
