print sequence problem after CURA slicing

Recommended Posts

Posted · print sequence problem after CURA slicing

Hi guys,

I am using the Ultimaker 2+ and the slicer CURA V3.0.

Although my 3d model is a 100% connected part CURA obviously sliced it into small pieces so that the printer does not print the first layer as a connected part.

I do not want to use a brim.

Does anybody knows how CURA prepares the first layer code?

Use the print outer walls first option because at the moment it is printing from the inside out and the inside walls are not connected.

Thanks. This helps definitely.

Is there a way to preview the sequence for the first layer?

Also I would like to decide where to start.

The only way I think is to save the gcode and load it into a gcode viewer. A particularly nice gcode viewer is the craftware slicer (it's free and you can get it from https://craftunique.com/craftware/). You can load a gcode file into that and scroll through the layers and lines on each layer and it can display all sorts of useful info about each line (coords, speed, extrusion rate, etc.) For me using the linux version there seems to be a bug in it that it always complains about gcode files above a certain size having a problem but even so, it still manages to display them. There's lots of other gcode viewers available.
