Travel line stringing

Hi to Everyone,


I have question about traveling line. When I printed with nylon transparent material stringing line occurs. I tried to reduce temperature and increase the retraction distance, and also combing mode is off, but still going this problem.

    Hey @jvl,


    Thanks for sharing your problem and the project file. 


    Your settings seem fine. These are all light blue lines, so they should be retracted. 


    Nylon is really prone to stringing once it has absorbed moisture.
    When did you open the spool? Could it have absorbed a lot of moisture over time? 
    You can try drying the spool on the buildplate.
    The feeder tension could also be off. Is it in the middle?

    Hi MariMakes,

    Thank you for your answer. The package was opened 5 months ago. It could be a humidity issue. I will try to dry.
