settings help: filament is retracting all of the way out of hotend assembly?


Recommended Posts

Posted · settings help: filament is retracting all of the way out of hotend assembly?

im running a davinci pro 3in1, and yes i know thats my first problem. ive been running cura for a few months now and have had little to no problems until this. last week i clogged my nozzle to the point of needing  to disassemble my entire hotend three times in one day. on closer inspection i noticed that instead of my usual 6.5mm retraction, it was pulling the filament out of the hotend and partially into the bowden tube before running it back in again. no bueno.  i tried adjusting my retraction to 6mm on the off chance the decimal place wasnt registering, but to no avail. i also tried just turning retractions off and this worked... sort of. it stopped any retractions except for inbetween layers, which again takes a left turn at Albuquerque and into into low earth orbit with my filament.  


is there another setting not labeled as retraction that "retracts" so to speak? is this an issue that might be resolved by a reinstall of cura? ive got nothing on this one guys, totally shooting in the dark.

      • 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
