Stringing issue; which retraction setting for Anycubic Kobra Neo?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Stringing issue; which retraction setting for Anycubic Kobra Neo?

Hello there,

relatively new to this forum and also with FDM printers so please be patient about my noob questions. Since I bought a new Kobra Neo I am having big stringing\oozing issues that I can't solve in any way; these issue are often happening in the smallest part of the printed objects. I am also trying some string test object, like the one I attached, and the results are always not good at all specially as you can see in the picture (setting was Retraction distance:7 mm; Retraction speed: 60 mm). I've tried different settings from google search but still no solution to come; since I am interested into 28mm miniature printing please tell me if you have any advice for this particular printer model.. Thanks in advance!

    This is a popular problem.

    Passing the STL or other model file along is OK for some topics but in your case folks would want to see your settings.  

    With the model loaded and Cura set up and ready to slice, use the "File | Save Project" command to create a 3mf project file.  Post that file here.  It will contain not just the model, but also your printer and all your settings.


    In the Travel section are two settings you will need to adjust.  If you hover your mouse over them the tooltips will come up.

    "Retraction Minimum Travel"

    "Max Comb Distance with No Retraction"

    You want to set those up to insure there will be a retraction when the nozzle moves from one tower to the other.  After you get that right then you can start on dialing in the Retraction Distance and the Retraction/Prime speeds.  Good starting points for those on a bowden  printer are 5.0 and 30mm/sec.  Most folks end up at 6 or 6.5 and at 35 to 45mm/sec.

      • 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
