I printed in parts and can now print the first color but my retraction isn't working right still. 1st color goes all the way through and prints but does not fully retract from my direct drive orbiter extruder. What adjustments do you suggest? I have tried adjusting (G4 S10 ; <<---- INCREASE VALUE (S = Seconds) TIME IF IT DOESN'T UNLOAD FROM THE Y ADAPTER) but it still won't unload. its almost as if the extruder itself needs to retract. here is my complete tool exchange Gcode.
