Z axis stops moving up when printing circular features, Cura issue?

Recommended Posts

Why does this happen to me? For whatever reason, when I print anything that has circles in the z axis, my printer will print up to the halfway point of the circle, then the z axis stops moving up, but the printer keeps printing, ruining my print. I notice that the z axis will actually move up, but then it just moves back down to the same height. It happens every time that there is a circular feature on the z axis, as shown in this example picture. I'm sure that something is happening in Cura that causes this. Has this happened to anyone else?

    • "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.
