Joris outer edge problem

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if I understood the idea behind this option correctly but I thought this means that the z is continuously increased and the extrusion always on. So one would get something like a helix. As I tried to print a cylinder I got a "seam" over the whole height. The reason for this can be seen in the code below. E.g. it increased up to Z8.3, then stopped the extrusion, went down to 8.225 and began extruding again.

Is this the way it is supposed to happen?

The 'Joris' feature is a bit of a hack, and only works anything like properly for very simple designs where you are printing only the outside single-thickness wall of a solid object. Any other geometries are going to confuse it and cause problems.

Also, even then, sometimes the underlying Skeinforge slicer does some odd things, and will cause the head to back track in order to start a 'layer' at the point closest to the origin, rather than continuing onwards with the spiral.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
