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)

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
