Cura 2.3.1, walls and skirt

Recommended Posts

Using Cura 2.3.1, I print with 3 walls with a 0.4mm nozzle, i have 1 skirt selected with 3mm distance and when i print, the machine prints 3 skirts aswell.

Bug ? Not a problem with small parts, but then the buildarea is filled it takes a while to do all 3 skirts :)

From the manual:


Skirt minimum length: The total length of the skirt. This will override the skirt line count when the minimum length is not reached yet.


Ah....thank you :) I have not activated this setting, when I check it, it says 250mm....still confused, i would think the minimum lenght should not come into play unless the setting is checked and visible in the rightside panel.

This means that all settings and its default values are valid and applied to prints even when its not visible...

    • "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.
