Retraction issues with IdeaMaker 3.1.7.1850

Postby Intector » Mon May 28, 2018 6:11 pm

Hello,

I'm using your IdeaMaker software for quite some time now and i love it. It is very intuitive and flexible, I would say it's the best slicer software on the market so far and I've tried many different ones. There is just one thing I would like to ask you about it.

I have some problems with the retraction settings in IdeaMaker. The option "Avoid Retraction Inside Models" works only if you disable the option "Avoid Traveling Through Holes". This, for me, makes no sense because one would try to prevent traveling through holes while still having the printer retract the material on G0 moves within the layers. Otherwise you'll have some nasty visible stringing inside your model(especially with PETG). Those filament lines are visible on transparent and semi transparent material like PETG and also in the bottom and top layers on other materials.

I've attached two files to demonstrate the issue. The file "test 01.gcode" has the "Avoid Traveling Through Holes" enabled and the file "test 02.gcode" don't, all other settings are the same. As you can clearly see only if the option "Avoid Traveling Through Holes" is disabled the retraction works on every G0 move within the model.

Please advice what can i do to have both options available at the same time?

thank you

Would you like to try a beta version? We think we have debugged the root cause of your issue already.
