UM2 Retraction settings question?

Posted · UM2 Retraction settings question?

As much as I like Cura, I usually wind up using Kisslicer, for features that don't exist in Cura.

Kisslicer generates "standard" RepRap GCODE and does not use G10/G11 commands for retraction by default.

My question is whether the Retraction settings on the UM2 control panel have any effect at all when used with GCODE from other slicers that don't use G10/G11?

=========================================

Corrected: I found the Kisslicer setting that forces use of G10/G11. It's called Printer / Firmware / Mark path Start/Stop

So am I correct in thinking that G10/G11 is what the UM2 machine Retraction settings modifies?

    Yes - retraction settings on UM2 affect only G10,G11. You really don't need the G10/G11 stuff if you only have one printer. This is just so that you can have different printers with different needs for retraction or so you can share gcode with a friend (instead of STL files).

    UM founders have big ideas about sharing and compatibility and community but ultigcode is only a tiny step towards better compatibility in gcode files.
