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?

Thanks!

    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.
