Can we have a different extruder speed for retraction?

It was inspired by this discussion

 

Besides the reason mentioned in the above thread. When doing retraction, a faster retract speed drives better result. But with the same speed, when the extruder going forward, it may cause the extruder jam problem. A simple solution is to set a different retract/forward speed when doing retractions.

Can we have that setting?

    The link you posted is about volumetric extrusion. You can set Cura to volumetric extrusion by changing the gcode flavour in the machine settings. You will have to compile your own Marlin firmware with FWRETRACT enabled which gives you the tools you need as understanding G10 and G11 commands. On your Ulticontroller you will then also be able to set different values for retract and priming speed.

    Thanks for the reply. I think we have firmware retraction and slicer retraction settings and just enable one of them should be enough.

    instead of changing volumetric extrusion and enable frimware retraction, enable a parameter setting in cura would be more straight forward, or maybe a cura plugin can do this. :-)

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
