Retraction Tower?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Retraction Tower?

Hi All,


 Is it possible to do a retraction tower like you would a temperature tower?


 is there an extension or plug-in where you can change retraction distance and speed at height/layer?


 Is Linear Move Retraction in ChangeAtZ what I'm looking to do?

    I am also wondering whether this is the problem, I tried doing a retraction tower using the "ChangeAtZ 5.2.1(Experimental)" extension under post processing. But I've struggled to determine whether or not the printers firmware is overriding the cura settings, how do I ascertain whether my printer (CR10S Pro V2) is using firmware or linear move retraction? Any help would be great!
