Confirmation of Retraction Setting overwrite and Dual Print Head settings?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Confirmation of Retraction Setting overwrite and Dual Print Head settings?

I am trying to dial in for stringing,  which setting trumps the other.  Filament settings that are set for specific loaded filament or the print settings for the sliced profile?  If filament is set at 5mm and retraction speed of 35mm/s and the print profile is set for 2mm and 20mm/s, and you slice the stl, what will the retraction actually be?  


Next, can you set up different print and travel speeds for a dual extruder based on the material in use?  Another words I want to print slow on my PLA 30mm/s and Faster 50mm/s on my PVA or Break away PLA, as I want better print quality and not really care what the support looks like.  Problem is when I try and set it in the print profile it over writes the other nozzle also.


Thanks in advance for the information.

    This worked in 5.2.2 but appears to be broken in 5.3.0.  No matter what retraction I set for T1 it is always the same as T0.

    You can make a bug report HERE on Github.  It looks like a bug to me.

      • 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.
