Flashforge Creator Pro - String only at end of print

Wed Jan 18, 2017 5:48 pm

My prints seems to come out ok with no stringing on the models except when the print finally finishes, I get one long string at the bed moves away from the print head as shown here https://goo.gl/photos/2UxQhwzyJeyurG6v7

Any idea?

You could add a retraction right at the start of your ending script. That way it retracts right after it finishes the last layer of printing.

Wouldn't the filament be too high for the next print if I did that?

If there's a nozzle purge built into the start script, then this would compensate for any end of print retraction.
