Toolpath display question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Toolpath display question

Just getting started in Cura, and I'm curious what the significance of the per layer colors are. When it shows a solid color (no beads) does that just indicate solid fill? Why different solid color triangles within a given layer?

Thanks!

I'm not sure but I think it switches color every mm or so of filament which makes the colors come out kind of random. I think red is reserved for outer loops. Only the currently displayed upper 15 layers are shown proper width - layers lower than that show thin lines.

Thin "solidly blue" lines seem to show moves and thin red lines are something else - hops maybe? Anyway the thin lines are where there is no extrusion (with exception of more than 15 layers below currently displayed layer).

Pink lines are moves with retraction, blues are moves without. Infill is shown in 3 colors.
