Help with Retraction settings Cura

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I just printed the 3D Kitbash test prints on our Ultimaker. Most of the features came out pretty good, except for the webbing between different features. Other prints I made experience the same issue, does anyone have good advice/rule of thumb for setting the retraction in Cura. I've attached a picture of the print and the Cura settings I used.

I've just fixed a bug yesterday, it seems that inter-island travels of less then 10mm could have problems where there was no retraction happening while it should. (It was a nasty bug)

I think this is exactly what is happening here.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
