Bug with retraction distance

Tue Oct 06, 2015 1:11 pm

There is a bug in the retractation filament distance. The gcode uses the value of "Tool change retraction distance" (Advanced), instead of "Retraction distance" (Extrude).
For printing with 1 material this 2 values must be same, but for printing with 2 materials, the "Tool change retraction distance" is used even when there is not tool change. That increases significantly the printing time because it is much more important to prevent filament heating during the wait.

This problem is it identified?

(Thanks for your good job on version 3)

I'm experiencing extra long retractions and found this bug, which explains it. The default 'tool change extraction distance' is 12mm, I've changed it to the same value I have for 'Retraction Distance' for future prints. I'm using a single extruder. Thanks Frguy.

Please fix.

And yes, v3 is a big step in the right direction, good work.
