Too many retractions, thin wall problem, help me please :-)

Posted · Too many retractions, thin wall problem, help me please :-)

Hi!

I have drawn a cookie cutter and wanted to slice it with cura.

But there seems to be a problem with too many retractions, and I don´t know why they should be necessary.

Could you take a look at my photo?

Thanks!

I think your images are set to private.

You could try the spiralize option?

Hey Titus,

thanks for your reply.

And I have another question.

The Z-Move isn´t always at the same place. Is there a way to change the z-move/lift, that it is always at the place? That would look better, I think.

Thanks a lot!

Timm

Hm, I see your problem. You have 2 shells, an inner and an outer shell. They are printed and in between infill is printed. But since it's at some percentage, it only prints at certain locations, jumbing from one place to another. Enabling combing would help a bit, but you probably want to use another setting, my bad in advising spiralize.

You need to check the black magic setting: only follow mesh surface. That's what I use for cookie cutters, it skips infill, top and bottom layers :)
