Kisslicer settings for Ultimaker2

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Kisslicer settings for Ultimaker2

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?

      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.
