adjust retraction settings in OctoPrint

Postby wshiwsbrding » Tue Jan 17, 2017 1:16 am

I just watched a video all about adjusting retraction settings to minimize stringing. Really great video that went over several different retraction settings meanings and purposes and uses. Showed some examples of with settings and with no settings and what difference it can make, wow cool!

Ive been using OctoPrint and can't find any way at all to adjust retraction other than to check the box or not check the box. Is there more to it than that? Based on the examples I saw in this particular video it seems I could be getting much less stringy results if there is a way to make retraction adjustments.

I can't find anything on it related to retraction settings + OctoPrint anywhere.

You don't have to slice in OctoPrint. You can download the slicer of your choice and have access to all its configuration options, then just load the resulting gcode with OctoPrint.

That seems like the only real option. Im gonna try slicing in cura and see how I like that.
