Hey! Thanks for your quick reply. Just noticed my for my response, I forgot to click "Post".
I am currently printing around 50MM/S, and at 220C. Filament has been measured.
I am using Ultimaker filament, and assume its probably going to work the best, has anyone had bad experiences with it? I don't think it is the filament. I do a lot of 3D Printing in, and own a few other printers. Only thing I could think of, is it's cura.
I'm going to print out that little retraction thing, on thingiverse for sure right now though.
If anyone else has any ideas, please let me know!
Have you measured your filament to make sure it matches the setting in cura? If you filament is thinner than what has been set in cura you will get less plastic than intended.
What speed and temp are you at? If you print fast and/or cold you can get partial under extrusion where not quite enough plastic is getting through. Slowing down and/or increasing temperature will help if that's the case.
For the retraction I would start by installing this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:22851
As for retraction settings, I don't quite remember what I used to use. Probably whatever the standard is set to. My Ultimaker1 has been rebuilt and altered quite a bit from stock these days. Someone else will help there I'm sure. I think gr5 did some more scientific testing on stringing vs speed/temperature which I'm sure he'll share if he shows up.
One thing to keep in mind though. Some filaments are just prone to stringing and there isn't much you can do about it. I have a roll of black for example that is just a pain in the arse.
