Sorry, but my example shows me the contrary:
Without retracts 2271.9 mm
With retracts 2255.7 mm
I print 2 identical objects with really a lot of retracts for each and additional the changes of position of the printhead between them.
I think my difference is resulting by the setting of negativ restart of -0.13 mm and indeed for the whole print the extruder works a little bit less than printing without retracts.
The difference of 16 mm is not worthwhile to speak about.
Good point! Negative extra restart would cause this type of reporting as the retracted amount and the primed amount in this case wouldn't be equal and would therefore shorten the total amount extruded. Just how positive extra restart would increase the amount of filament extruded and factored into the total for the print.
