"Only follow mesh surface" AND "Z hop/retraction"

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've been immensely enjoying using Cura to slice/generate g-code for models to be printed on my deltabot.

I almost now extensively print using only follow mesh surfaces as I often print things with single line width (e.g. a vase).

However, I've noticed, while "Spiralize the outer contour" also generates a brim and enables z hop/retraction, enabling the "Only follow mesh surface" does not (which I guess as the name implies).

I was wondering if it is possible to allow "Only follow mesh surface" to incorporate z-hop/retraction when generating g-code.

Thank you

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
