Posted · A quick Question about retraction settings

Hi All, 

Just a Quick question. So, there are two settings in CURA 5.0.Retraction Speed and Retract Retraction Speed. What is the difference? Right now I am just going to set both at 45mm/s.

    The "Retraction Speed" setting is Momma and "Retraction Retract Speed" and "Retraction Prime Speed" are the daughters.  When linked - the Retraction Speed will apply to both retract and prime.  You can have different speeds for retract and prime as well.

    If there is an "fx" next to the "...Retract Speed" or the "...Prime Speed" you can click on the "fx" to re-link it to the main "Retraction Speed" setting.
