That looks a lot better. Note that you will get fewer travel moves and retractions if you enable the wall order optimization.Anyway, the root of your problem was the bad travels (with no z-hop) caused by combing. There's definitely a problem with the combing still.

Hi, as the creator of the skin expand feature I am interested to read your comments. Personally, I have never suffered the problem you describe but that doesn't mean to say that I don't believe that it occurs. Perhaps I don't see it because I only use thick layers (200um or greater).Anyway...
That's the same file as you posted yesterday! Combing is set to no skin, I would like to see the gcode that corresponds to your latest better print.
Could you please post a link to the latest gcode and I will look to see what's happening on the V.
I've had a chance to look at this some more. With your recent gcode, it is retracting when crossing the red regions but it isn't doing a z-hop. This is controlled by the combing code which I believe has a problem in this area. If you turn off combing it should not do this.
Thanks for the file. Yes, it's still not retracting on some of the travels. I think this could be related to an existing bug. What happens if you turn off combing altogether? I would expect that to force a retraction for all moves.
That gcode file is the same as you posted yesterday. Have you got the file for today please?
Hi, you quoted me but added nothing else, do you have a reply also?
If you are talking about what I think, then the setting was added during development and then (for some reason I forget now) the feature was removed but the setting got left in the front end by mistake. I'm not sure that it was ever fully functional?
