Disbale some extra Retractions

Postby Olly Oxenfree » Sun Jun 28, 2020 1:01 pm

Hi,

I have just installed 3.6.0 Beta on Linux Mint 19.3 for my Delta printer with Marlin 1.1.9 and all looks good. Prints are coming out great, thank you very much.

I am printing a round cup-like item and the sold fill parts of the base have a zillion retractions for the first and last 20 or so vertical passes. At the top and bottom of every Vertical pass of the black-regions of the pic, I get a Retraction. Once it gets to the white area it is fine.

I have set
Retraction at 6.5mm at 40m/s
No Wipe
No Coasting
Force Retraction On Layer Change is UN-checked
Avoid Retraction Inside Models IS-checked
Enable Retraction at Bottom and Top of Models IS-checked

All of those extra Retractions are taking up lot of time. Is there some way to prevent them?

Thanks

You can give Unchecking Enable Retraction at Bottom and Top of models a try.

DUH -- slapping my forehead. :oops:

Thanks, I am not sure how I missed that EVEN after typing that it WAS checked.

I am old and Dyslexic, (also "Disbale" in the Subject) that's my excuse. I must have read that as "Disable Retraction ..."

Olly, did unchecking the option "Enable Retraction at Bottom and Top of Models" really solve your issue? I'm asking because I have the same problem and for me it did not solve it.
