Hi all,

is it possible in cura 4.6 seeing the retractions in print preview? I can see the travels but I cannot see the points where the machine will do retractions...


Thanks in advance!!!

    If you go to layer view, select the line type color scheme and enable travel lines, you can see where retraction happens. Dark blue lines are unretracted, light blue is retracted.

    This information helped me a lot, thank you!

    I have one more question about this.

    Is it also possible to see in cura --> Before which movement a Z Hop was executed?

    Because of the Option to select „Z Hop Only Over Printed Parts“ in Cura it is not realy clear to me which movement with retraction is also with an Z Hop.
