Trouble with nozzle switch retraction settings in Cura 4.8


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Trouble with nozzle switch retraction settings in Cura 4.8

Does anyone know if there is a Cura setting to force the second nozzle to un-retract filament AFTER it is over the wipe tower and not before?

I'm doing a dual material print with PC+HIPS (using the HIPS as support) and whenever the nozzles switch, it first un-retracts the filament back into the nozzle (which results in some filament coming out onto my part) BEFORE it travels over to the wipe tower to prime the nozzle. This seems like a simple fix but I'm not sure what Cura settings to change to correct it.... Any ideas? NOTE: I'm using Cura 4.8.0

Here's a short video showing the problem in action happening:


NOTE: I'm running this print on my Airwolf3D AXIOM Dual Direct Drive printer. Any help/tips/ideas appreciated!
