Retraction problem?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

On most of my parts, I think that my Ultimaker2 doesn't retracts well the filament. For instance, we can see such things:


You can clearly see the travel moves on the top layer of this part, this is not normal

Any idea how I could avoid this?

Thanks &

Merry christmas :wink:

Its not a retraction issue. Its combing. Try disabling Combing in expert settings->retraction section.

Combing is used to reduce retractions and simply travel on the infill instread. It does leave a mark.

You can also use the retract on combing plugin but cant find the path at the moment (check the cura section in the forum)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
