Hey guys, does anyone here knows why Slic3r makes this very long and erratic moves after retraction??? And how to stop it?!?!?

I don’t have a lot of problems with oozing, just some pimples here and there.
But when it starts doing this, it just destroys the outer surface with material that gets wiped.

It generally happens when printing small consecutive sections.
Check it out on the video.

I’m not sure on that one. Is it every model or just this one.

@Kevin_Danger_Powers like i said, it generally happens when printing small consecutive sections.

@Andre_Frazatto I’m not sure but it definitely seems like a slicer setting. I just don’t know what would cause it to do that. There just doesn’t seem to be any logic behind it.

check all your settings, you may have a an invalid figure or some other error that causes this.

Probably something to do with an invalid model and possibly something like avoiding perimeters on travel move. Additionally it could also be the setting to keep the seam all on the same side (as it’s aligning to the side you set the seam to be on, etc) Do you have the seam set to be on a specific corner every time?

@ThantiK it was set to closest because I lost the first attempt on random and also tough it could be the problem.

Is there a post retract wipe?

(André Frazatto) #10

@Jeff_DeMaagd no, there isn’t.
That would be an easy fix \o/

(André Frazatto) #11

Ahhhh…it keeps happening…it’s so annoying!!!

(ThantiK) #12

@Andre_Frazatto Rebuild from a default slic3r profile.

(André Frazatto) #13

@ThantiK That did the trick, maybe I carried over the config files one version too many.

Thanks!!!

turn of Whipe befor retraction, i have it enabled and it is doing so too, and it has nothing to do with the model,
pro:tip: use http://gcode.ws to watch what moves it will make without printing it
