Retraction problem?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Retraction problem?

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)
