Different print settings in model

Posted · Different print settings in model

Today I was wanting to do a stringing test. I loaded up 10 models on the build plate and proceeded to apply different print settings to each. Except I could not find the settings to change retraction amount and speed or temp. Are these just not there or am I not looking in the correct spot?

    It depends... 🙂 Which printer definition is selected?

     

    Printers of the UM2-series use the material settings that are configured on the printer itself (by default).

    You have to change the GCode-Flavor to "Marlin" if you want to have full control about this with Cura. It's in the Cura machine settings.

     

    Be aware that there are settings for maximum feedrate. If you want to go higher than 45mm/s for retraction speed you have to increase the maximum allowed value first (printer maintenance menu -> "Motion settings")

     

    Good luck!
