Posted · turning point for zylindrical part

Hi

I try to print a zylindrical part (80mm diamater - 2mm wallthicknes) with a text on the zylinder.

The print looks very fine but there is a problem with the turning point of every layer.

Is there an option in cura that i can define the same turning point for every layer. I want to have the turning point on the back of the zylinder and not in the text...

    There is: Advanced -> Shell -> Z Seam Alignment = Back

    Not sure where 'back' is, I'm assuming its maximum positive Y position.

    You may need to set Visibility to ALL in Preferences -> Settings.

    Hope this helps
