print sequence problem after CURA slicing

Recommended Posts

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?



Nice greetings

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

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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
