Retraction Tower - Custom


Recommended Posts

Posted · Retraction Tower - Custom

Hi All,


I have an Ender 5 S1 and my understanding is the best retraction distance is around 0.8 mm and 30 mm/s.  I'm just trying out one of the Auto Towers in the Auto Towers Plugin in Cura.  The Retract Tower 1-6 specifically.  I'm just trying to work out where it's programmed to change the retraction settings at the specific layer?  What I put in Cura is obviously for the entire print, but in the Modify GCode section there are no settings to indicate things change at a specific layer etc.


I assume the Gcode is somehow embeded in the plugin for that Auto Tower???


I want to try the 0.8 mm at 30 mm/s.  Can anyone suggest a way of modifying one of the towers so that it just tries my settings, and doesn't change them.  I just want to see if my settings work.  Or alternatively, can anyone suggest a model for testing the retraction that i've dialled in is working so that I don't have to design my own.  


I just want to find a good test model of my specific settings.
