Dialing-in my new E3D v6 and I’m wondering if anyone has recommendations for a starting point for retraction settings?
I’m using a MakerGear non-bowden drive (geared stepper, Gregs’s-style) primarily with 1.75 PLA, and slicing with Cura if that comes in to play.
Easy: As fast as you can, 1mm or less. Fast XY movements between retracts also help.
(Which is what works for me)
1mm is what i use i have e3d v6 3mm
@Thomas_Sanladerer What speed do you usually do? I’ve had good results with .35 at 20mm with an e3d v5.
@Mark_Estefanos I have it set at 12mm/s due to an ancient bug in Marlin that affects extruder speeds above that. Not sure if they fixed it yet.
Thanks @Thomas_Sanladerer , also thanks for your awesome videos, saved me some trouble getting the hot-end assembled (also thanks for making them in English as well as German
