Retraction settings in Cura?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Retraction settings in Cura?

Hi guys.

Maybe a stupid question, but i cant seem to find the settings for retraction in Cura 14.07, can anyone tell me whewre to find of if it even exist anymore?

I need to be able to tell Cura how much to retract and how much extra filament to start with after each jump, i could do that in my Old, old, Cura.

By they way Daid, Cura 14.07 is VERY nice to work with compared to what im used to :-)

Thanks in advance.

The retractions speed and distance settings are available on the 'Advanced' tab, if you have configured it to generate traditional 'Reprap/Marlin' gcode.

If Cura is configured for the Ultimaker², then you do not get to edit those settings, as retraction speed and distance are configured on the printer for the Ultimaker², as part of the material settings.

Reprap volumetric also allows you to still use the firmware retraction (G10 and G11 codes), which allows custom retract amounts set by the firmware itself (different amount of retraction recovery amount, for example).
