How does Cura handle layer changes w/o extrusion?

Posted · How does Cura handle layer changes w/o extrusion?

Hi, I have a quick question,


I would like to know how Cura handle layer changes. Based on looking at some sample gcode I would say that a layer change in Cura is always performed without extruding any material. 
Is this correct? Are there any special cases where this might not be the case?
