  1. I too would love this feature to be available. I am using my printer to print RC yacht hulls, and the spiralize feature produces wonderful sections, but the issue comes when there is an access hatch or similar to be included int he hull and the spiralize function does not cope. Then I go to a "standard" sort of print and cannot get even close tot he same print quality with it. I hope the developers see this as an option that could be utilised and make it available at some stage (pretty please)
  2. Hi - this is my first post (be easy on me). I am using Cura 15.04.6 My printing currently is involving printing RC Yacht hull sections, and after upgrading my printer to a Creality CR-10, I am seeing great improvements in the print quality results in general. With my hull prints, the actual print is just 0.8mm thick wall and the section I am printing at the moment to tune in the printer is the bow section. My first print was not much different to the old printer, a bit rough, not watertight and a reasonable amount of post processing work needed. I tried a print with spiralized mode selected and Wow. It was the perfect print with all the build lines so fine, there was absolutely no work required post print. The thing is, that I cannot use the spiralized function as each hull section is not a continuously complete "circled" section and there are areas where there are designed access holes in the hull. I have seen with the spiralized results, the print quality I am looking for, but have no idea how to fine tune the settings to even get the print in the same ballpark. My settings are as follows; Layer height 0.2 Shell thickness 0.8 Fill density 100% (have also used 0% to try out) Print Speed 50 Temp 205 Bed 60 Filament 1.75 Flow 100% Nozzle 0.4 Retraction 60mm/s Speed 5 Initial layer thickness 0.2 Initial line width 120% Dual extrusion overlap 0.15mm Retraction 1.5mm Enable Combing - All Minimal extrusion before rectraction 0.02 Z hop when retracting 0.075 The rest of Expert Config as standard Pic of the "normal" hull section And pic of Spiralised hull section Any advise as to what I might be able to do in the settings to improve the hull section so it is like the spiralized one would be hugely appreciated.
