Blobs from undone retraction at start
September 27, 2014 01:49PM
My Skeinforge (latest version) adds a "undo retraction" step (positive value) right at the beginning of the print. I found in dimension.py that the "undo retraction" is added after a M101 command. Well, I didn't looked too long.
The effect is, there are large blobs at the first layers since the extruder has pumped 3mm too much filament into the hotend.
If I remove the retraction command manually in the gcode, I get good prints.

In the Skeinforge generated code below, two line before the first M101 command there is a "G1 E3.15" WITHOUT preceeding retraction ==> too much filament.

What is wrong? The M101 command or the added "undo retraction"? Shall I file a bug? My settings wrong?

For the records. I solved it by changing the python code.
