Why is Cura adding a feature to top of part while in "Spiralize Outer Contour Mode"?

Posted · Why is Cura adding a feature to top of part while in "Spiralize Outer Contour Mode"?

Good evening.

I have recently upgraded Cura 15.04.5 Linux version. When printing a cube in the spiralize mode the slicer adds an unwanted feature to the top of the part. About 4-6 layers from the top of the single walled cube the g-code forces the printer to produce a radius around the perimeter of the part. Which in turn makes the opening at the top smaller. An older version did not do this. The wall was parallel from top to bottom. I liked using the older version to adjust the flow rate percentage to allow for filament diameter discrepancies. With 15.04.5 I am forced to heavily deburr the inside of the part to take measurements. I looked thru the expert settings and did not see a tab or button to avoid Cura adding the unwanted feature. Do you know of a way to shut this off or is this the way the spiralize is intended to work?

Thank you.

    Try to uncheck the "Solid Infill Top" case in expert settings and check what happen !

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
