The software is behaving strangely

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm useing cura 15.

I encountered a strange phenomenon when I print.

I print bottle and it's no't smooth , it has a lot of printing marks.

When I check the Gcode file I see that the program gives instructions I do not understand the reason for them.

Let's take an example of that cycle, the software creates a circle(1st layer) and on the circle creates a number of points and circle again.

I don't know why it doing the points and not just do another circle.

Thanks

Printing marks? You mean the lines from the head moving? If so use Retract while combing pluging or move to $implify3d...

Also if you mean the marks from the head moving, you might need to check if you have combing 'all' so cura hides as best as he can the marks or use z-hop that will remove that but might add another kind of mark from the head moving up. You must choose what's the best/worse you can use.

    • "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.
