Post Processing Script "Retract Tower" malfunction for Distance

Recommended Posts

Posted · Post Processing Script "Retract Tower" malfunction for Distance

The Post Processing Script "Retract Tower", with mode "Distance", generates false G-code for the retraction, after the tower is finished.


At the end of the Tower, the Extruder is at E104.9.9863

For retraction of the filament, the extruder moves back 11mm to E93.98630

Then after switching of the heaters, the Extruder position is set to 1mm (G92 E1)

After this, the Extruder extrudes 93mm of material (G1 F300 E93.98630), which causes a material blob at the decreasing tower. See included picture


In the "Speed" Mode the Filament retraction is working well

;Retract the filament

G92 E1

G1 F3000 E-1.00000


Please fix this error.

    Is there anyone who takes care about this issue?

    This looks like a possible bug..

    Its best to report bugs directly on github for the creator of the plug-in in question

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
