restart distance

Sat Mar 07, 2020 8:35 am

something unclear, retraction is set to 0.7 and restart to -0.2 (so restart also should retract) with 15mm/sec retraction speed

Code: Select all

;   extruderRetractionDistance,0.7
;   extruderExtraRestartDistance,-0.2
;   extruderRetractionSpeed,900
;   toolChangeRetractionDistance,12
;   toolChangeExtraRestartDistance,-0.5
;   toolChangeRetractionSpeed,600
but in gcode I see

Code: Select all

; layer 1, Z = 0.200
G92 E0.0000
G1 E-0.7000 F900
; feature skirt
; tool H0.200 W0.468
G1 Z0.300 F600
G1 X5.624 Y1.484 F12000
G1 Z0.200 F600
G1 E-0.2000 F900
G92 E0.0000
G1 X5.553 Y1.692 E0.0089 F360
G92 E0.0000
G1 E-0.7000 F900
; layer 2, Z = 0.400
M106 S255
G4 P500
M106 S128
M104 S230 T0
; feature inner perimeter
; tool H0.200 W0.360
G1 Z0.500 F600
G1 X16.402 Y2.404 F12000
G1 Z0.400 F600
G1 E-0.2000 F900
G92 E0.0000
G1 X16.111 Y2.123 E0.0126 F3420
isn't G92 E0 missing before each G1 E-0.2000 F900 ?

It looks like that may be what is happening but we have not seen this before. It is possible any number of things might be affecting this though. Can you please post a Factory File where this gcode was created so we can take a deeper look?
