ZigZag extrusion between wall and infill


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · ZigZag extrusion between wall and infill

In this case is at an angle.

As you can see in the imagens, there is a lot of overlapping toolpath extrusion in only one layer, this will cause some problems in the shell of the prints, if I increase the print speeds.

I think if we could uncheck the zigzag extrusion, we could have better prints for higher speeds.

    The zig zags that you are talking about are top/bottom layers. As the side wall is on an angle it lays a small section of a top or bottom layer in the area covering the amount of angle.

    (Don't think I explained that well)
