Kisslicer settings for Ultimaker2

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to print a simple empty cylinder with 0.8mm wall thickness with Ultimaker 2 but each time when I generate a gcode in Cura, I'm having some issues with the way how the gcode forces the extruder to travel.

I have tried various settings but each time the extruder does not make a circle but it makes something more like a polygonal structure with many corners. To be clear, the extrusion path is indeed a circle but on top of that the extruder makes various additional useless moves which mess up the print.

I have had this issue with printing cylinders in all Cura versions. Before I solved this problem by simply using Kisslicer instead of Cura. It worked just fine... but I did that with Ultimaker 1. Right now I have Ultimaker 2 but I don't know how to properly set up Kisslicer... Does anyone has experience with that? Any tutorial how to do it properly?

    • "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.
