useless movements during printing

Recommended Posts

I downloaded a calibration block from Thinverse (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5683), and sliced with Cura.

During printing, I see that a few of the thin walls insde the object are messed up by the head, making all kind of useless movements above them. In the gcode view this is visible in the blue lines.

I noticed this also in other prints, especially with thin walls. I notice in the picture, that the useless movements only occur around these walls.

Is there some setting that prevents these movements? Tips, anyone?

It sounds like the new slicer that Daid and a host of others are working on will address this. ATM, Cura is limited to the capabilities of SkeinForge. I would say take a look at your part and determine which slicer you think is going to do a better job with it right now (Cura or KS) and hope the new one properly addresses the thin wall problem.
