IdeaMaker - Retraction only pulls but doesn't reset

Postby Sebinski » Fri Mar 27, 2020 3:26 pm

Hey Guys,

i've got the IdeaMaker_3.5.2.4098 and stumbled upon a weird behavior. In my Gcode the rectraction is only positiv to pull the filament and in the lines where it should reset the Filament with the negative amount it says E0. So just pulls the filament out of my HotEnd bit by bit :D

I've found a workaround with the "Extra Restart Amount", but i guess that's not how it's supposed to be. Had somebody the same problem or could someone find an explonation, i guess i'm just overlooking something.

Cheers

Would you like to share your gcode file with us?
If you can point out which gcode is causing issue from your file, that will help us figure out what's going on as well.

Please check whether you have checked "Relative Extrusion" under Printer Settings - Advanced.

I checked relative extrusion, cause it's recommended with a zesty nimble remote direct drive system and a duet wifi. When this causes the problem, is the workaround with the Extra Restart Amount the way to go or is there a more elegant solution?

Thanks for your information. We find a bug in ideaMaker causing the issue you meet.
Let me know what operation system you are using. We will contact you about testing beta version if you'd like to join when we complete the debugging.

Ah, okay. I use Windows 10 and i'd like to help and join the beta. You guys did a great job with this slicer. I really think it's the best slicer out there and on top it's free. I used simplify before and missed some key settings which i all found in IdeaMaker so far, so keep on the good work.
