15.01 Excessive Retracts


Recommended Posts

Posted · 15.01 Excessive Retracts

Using Cura with my Kossel printers, I updated to the new 15.01 (on OS X) and noticed that 1) infill is printing before perimeters, and 2) this is causing the printer to retract between each line of infill.

My infill is set to 26% because that's the lowest I could set and still get only one direction of infill (as opposed to 20% where the slicer does both directions). Printing a simple object (10mm x 100mm x 10mm), the printer is retracting for each and every infill line.

I can't find any settings anywhere that control the order of printing, but I would prefer perimaters first. None of this was happening on previous versions of Cura. Is there a setting that I'm not seeing to change this behavior?

(And thanks for all the hard work on Cura!)

    Do you have combing disabled? If so, then this is expected behavior. (Sorry, should have thought of that first)

    The change of infill order is intentional in 15.01, it has to do with the new infill&top/bottom skin speed. This order simply gives the best looking results if you print the infill at higher speeds.
