Keep The Printer From Traveling Over Air

Recommended Posts

Posted · Keep The Printer From Traveling Over Air

I'm trying to print an RC Boat frame and I don't want the traveling to cut across the print like that. I want it to just keep going around, and I don't want to use Spiralize Outer Contour as that makes the print hollow. I tried using Combing Mode but since there is a bottom it will still just go right across the print.

If combing is disabled then make sure that is enabled. That tries to keep all movements inside the print.

If you don't like this because you are getting stringing then that is also fixable. You can print slower (which lowers the pressure) and you can print cooler. I would do both. Try half speed and drop temp by at least 10C. Somewhere from 180C to 210C.

Combing Mode is enabled but since there is a bottom to the print it will still print over it. I tried what you said and the stringing is ALOT better, thank you.
