Hi all

I am wondering whether it is possible to use retraction without having to deretract basically the same filament. Although I am using 
the G92 E0 code after retraction, the delta of retraction will be compensated and the first 10mm will hence not be printed. Is there a g-code or a setting, where you can skip the deretraction without changing the consecutive print.

G92 E0
G1 E-10 F1000 <- Retraction
(G1 E10 F1000 <- Deretraction)
G92 E0
G1 Code Afterwards

Help is appreciated.


  • Your procedure to generate gcode must fit this already. E.g. you can say last print might or might not have retracted 10mm so you make every print start with creating a prime line that is at least these 10mm but better a bit more. Then if there was no retract it just primes a bit more and if it was it refills. Would be good anyway since without retract you would ooze a bit so need to refill anyway before the print. One reason you also make a skirt which does actually the same.
