Initial Layer width in Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Initial Layer width in Cura

Hi guys. question or suggestion...

In the old cura versions ~15.04ish there has been the option: "Initial Layer Line width" which was great regarding adhesion problems. As you can tweak almost anything right now but this. Will this feature be reimplemented in the future?

The "Top/Bottom linewidth" is a different feature and doesn't affect the shell line width of the initial layer.

    Cool, thats awesome! I have no idea how this open source programming, github things work. As ive read they seem to have it solved and are ready to go. Is it possible - for a non python able person - to already use their new version?

    In a word: no

    Longer answer: sure, you could compile CuraEngine from source and make the required changes to the frontend. But that is all but trivial.
