Starting at certain point each layer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm testing with different sizes of nozzle for faster printing. I'm now busy testing with an 1.1mm nozzle and it works kind off good. The only thing, as you can see on the photo, is the switch to the next layer. I want all those points on the small side as on the right photo. It's a puzzle so you wont see that side. Are there any plugins for this? Or does anyone know how to fix it.

Hopefully you guys can help me!

Simon

I seem to remember reading that one of the recent Cura versions was supposed to look for the sharpest 'concave' corner and put the dimple there. If anyone else could confirm this, then one way would be to create a tiny corner running from top to bottom on the back face of the part.

It's just an untested theory, but might work :c)

Cheers.

Try printing much slower - try 30mm/sec or even 20mm/sec. As you approach the "jerk" speed (20mm/sec) you will sometimes get less "errors" like this. I would set the speed to maybe 100mm/sec and then set the speed percentage in the tune menu to various values from 20mm/sec to 40mm/sec and document where on the print you are to see what speeds do what and cancel the print if it's no better at 20mm/sec.

This little mark is where it goes from the outer layer shell to the inner shell. There is an older version of cura that you can try that always puts the "scar" in the back left corner so you in that version you could rotate the part as needed to put the scar wherever you wanted.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
