Can't turn off retraction - help!


Recommended Posts

Posted · Can't turn off retraction - help!

Hi -


I'm using Cura to slice for printing on an Ender 3 Pro with a 0.2mm nozzle.


For some reason in the last week or so, setting either 0.12mm or 0.08mm layer height means that retraction appears stuck on, regardless of settings applied on slicing. This does not affect prints on a larger layer height. I have tried reinstalling Cura and resetting my profile, to no avail.


If someone would be able to help with this it'd be really appreciated, no idea what I'm doing wrong! Not sure what supporting info to upload for this... I'm using cura 4.7.1.

    Hi GregValiant - Thank you for the quick reply!


    In this case it was my own error causing the problem - the printer was automatically retracting due to a blockage in the print head - not big enough to stop flow entirely but big enough to cause issues!


    All is now resolved, Cura was not to blame!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
