    Hey,

    I just put my V6 on my newly build delta which has a shorter bowden (ca10 cm in a "flying" configuration). I thought that that would make retraction better but it didnt I got some nasty blobs.

    Therefore I wanted to survey here what kind of retract setting or anti blobbing tips and tricks you're using here?

    Cheers

    I use 4mm and 40mm/s which does ok.

    Bowden tube length is kind of a weird thing, you don't want it too long, but you also want very gradual curves.
