Help with Retraction settings Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · Help with Retraction settings Cura

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.

You might want to tinker with some of the expert retraction settings, especially the "minimal amount of extrusion before retraction" might need some tuning (I already reduced the default from 0.5 to 0.1)

I'll just follow this thread since I have the same issues, but maybe worse on specific prints..

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.
