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

      • 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.
