I want to print a phone case.

Compared to other models I have sliced, Simplify3D implements a lot of retraction moves.

Is this normal? How can I (Should I?) reduce the number of retractions?

What retraction settings would you recommend in Simplify3D?

    $\begingroup$ It's unclear what you ask of us, besides try to set the language of your slicer in English if possible, you have a bigger audience that can help you. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Hi Pedro and welcome to SE.3DP. English only on this site I'm afraid, but we do want to help you. Please edit your screen shots, as 0scar states, and your question can/will be reopened. Sorry about that. :-) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Don't worry about the retractions. The number you see seems perfectly fine. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @towe - as you appear to understand the question, do you want to submit an answer (and edit the question to be more understandable)? I could re-open it, so that you can do so, if you so wish $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I have reinstated the images, and edited out the licensing in the image, I've put back in your new question. I have tried to interpret your English and what you mean. However, it is still not 100% clear what you are trying to describe. Could you check the English grammar and describe more clearly your problem. Thanks :-) What does this mean: so many points compared with others models? and this: so much point cause the retraction? - I think it is these two statements that are difficult to understand $\endgroup$
