Define start of perimeter


Recommended Posts

Posted · Define start of perimeter

Hi all,

Loving Cura as it is very easy to use and lots of options to play with.

What I was wondering though if there is a setting somewhere that lets you define the start of each perimeter line.

I have an issue whereby the stacked start and ends of the perimeter lines form a vertical line through the part on a seen face. Is there any way to move this start point to a defined area?

    Sadly, currently there isn't. I've tried to find out how Skeinforge defines the start point, which seems to be the closest point to the front left corner. But I couldn't find the point in the code where it defines the start point, so my guess is that it's a side effect of some code.

    Aha! So front left corner eh?

    Yes, I'll try and rotate the model and see if that makes any difference.

    It would be really really handy if at least we can define a different area where to define the start area for all perimeters.

    But even better if we could tick it over a certain amount every layer so that no vertical line would be formed.

    So Skeinforge would have to integrate this for Cura to take over?

    Skeinforge development is dead. I'm doing what I can, but some code is just impossible to follow. It's also slow, so we are slowly working on replacing it or parts of it.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
