Cura 2.1.3: Surface mode

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 2.1.3: Surface mode

Hi,

testing 'Surface mode' option in Cura 2.1.3.

From documentation: A ‘both’ mode has now been added. This ensures all closed volumes are printed as normal and all loose geometry as single walls.

I cannot get 'both' mode to work. Can someone give a example of what 'loose geometry' is. I suppose it means any geometry which is not a part of a close volume.

Made a quick test. 10x10x10mm cube with a single square stray polygon 'standing' on top of it vertically. This stray polygon is only sliced as single line in 'Surface' mode and completely ignored in 'Both'.

Any ideas? Thanks!

So... 'Surface' mode works like intended. Hollow cube with single with a square polygon on top printed in single line. However, 'Both' gives the same result as 'Standard', which is solid cube and the polygon on top completely ignored.

Unless I don't understand how to use it, 'Both' mode is not working. It would be cool to use such a feature for printing single line text on top of solid prints.

Would love to received a comment from any Cura devs. Thanks! :)

Good morning! I'm bumping this thread one last time for any Cura devs or more experienced users to see. If not, well, have a great weekend! :)

Nope. It's something that's wrong in the Engine. I hardly develop for the engine.
