  1. Thanks to all. I tried the solution suggested by geert_2. Unfortunately my cylinder seems to be just a bit too small to make this work well. Because of the size I can't do the side insert. The opening would reduce the mechanical strength too much. In the end I decided to dump the machine screw and nut in favor of a wood screw biting into a simple cylindrical hole in the middle. Seems to work ok for this. But I'll go back to this problem when I have a bit more time. If I find a working solution I'll post it here in case someone else has the same problem.
  2. I want to print a small cylinder with an embedded nut (see attached file). This will ultimately be part of a bigger project. My problem is that no matter what setting I try in Cura it will always place a line on the nut when resuming, and this will of course not stick to the metal. I was hoping to find a setting to make it print concentrically from the outside in, so that the first lines will stick to the PLA of the outer rim and then to the previous line as it works its way inside over the nut. Is there a setting for this or how do you solve this problem when embedding a nut?
