Cura 2.1.3 OK but Cura 2.3 -> ringing :(

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

There is something I don't find a way to solve :

On cura 2.1.3, everything's ok, almost perfect

But on 2.3 with the same parameter (i tried) i get bad surface with like "ringing".

I tried différent config and I get always this.

I watched when it prints and it looks like the print has 3 "parts" instead 2 (2.1.3):

- infill

- wall

- some zigzags between wall and infill

i guess ringing is because these zigzags but I don't know where they are from...

on the left : Cura 2.1.3 / on the right : Cura 2.3


on Cura 2.1.3, we have walls parts (green and red) and infill (orange)


but the same slicing with Cura 2.3, there are some yellow parts between orange and green. I guess ringing comes from this difference.(as 2.1.3 and 2.3 are not compatible, I use them on different PC, so I can't have a screenshot now)

Does anyone observes these zigzags ?

Does anyone have the same issue ?

Does anyone know which parameters influence these zigzags ?

Sorry for my bad English and let me know if you don't understand or need more information

It could be coming from infill being printed before perimeters. Try unchecking "Infill Before Walls" under "Infill" and see if that makes a difference. You probably need to add that setting and you can do that by hovering over the "Infill" header and clicking the little icon that pops up to the right.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
