[Plugin / function ] Movement Blocker.

There are 2 types of travel moves - those with retraction and those without.  Are you trying to say you want "no retraction" in a certain area?  Or do you want it to do "always retraction" in a certain area?  


You can use an STL model/mesh as a support blocker but you can also use it to modify many of the settings.  45 different settings it looks like.  But none of the "Travel" settings are included in that list of 45 settings unfortunately.  (like "enable retraction" or "combing mode")

    Wait - do you want travel moves to avoid an area?  There is an option called "avoid printed parts when travelling".  Maybe that's what you want?

    no this don't work for what i try.

    I think maybe you can create a complicated shape in the "avoid volume".  An STL.  Insert that mesh in the area where you don't want to print.  Then click on this mesh and give it infill of 0%, walls=0 top/bottom=0.  And it should print nothing but now "avoid printed parts" I think will go around your "avoid" mesh.

      • 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
