Top/Bottom Finishing Request

Posted · Top/Bottom Finishing Request

I would love to see an option for the top and bottom layers to not cross the piece when not extruding (that creates strings that ends up being visible).

This is purely for cosmetic reasons, but I think it is the only thing preventing a really polished looking print. I am willing to help if I can.

See attached image for the strings I am referring to.

    its a kinda of a good question.

    I printed some really nice good quality building models, the ultimaker printed the flat roofs beautifully and I was so happy in the last 30 seconds, the print head ran one time across from corner to corner and printed one stupid line across... why ? i have no idea ?

    Well it is doing the shortest path (I assume) to the next area it is going to lay down plastic. Which is all good and fine for all the layers that you can't see. But it would be really nice if it used slightly longer paths on the top and bottom to move to the next place.
