Outlines of Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Outlines of Cura

Stupid question: why does Cura draw the initial outlines around the objects? I do not see the use of it. It does not function as brim or anything like it.

That's called the "Skirt" and can be disabled in the Expert settings. The purpose is to make sure the nozzle is completely full of plastic before the real print starts.

Also this is your chance to do last minute leveling with the 3 screws. With the wooden bed UMO that was important. I still like it with the UM2 because my leveling might be great for many parts that print in the center but when I switch to a larger part I might notice it's too close/far in the back or on the front or whatever.

OK, thanks.

BTW: Clicking Best answer gives a 404.

Think the 404 is a more general issue... I got it with a link from notifications.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
