Z-hop during infill


Recommended Posts

Posted · Z-hop during infill

Sorry if this is and old issue but numerous searches have not found the answer.

Seems like most people complain about retraction and or Z-hop during infill slowing down the print but I have a delta printer and I really really need Z-hop to happen during travel moves over infill. Sometimes the nozzle drags thru already printed infill lines hard enough to cause a layer shift.

As near as I can tell, Z-hop only happens during travel with retraction.

Have not been able to turn on retraction during infill but I don't really need retraction, I just need Z-hop. Z-hop with or without retraction during infill travel would be just fine.

Z-hop during retraction is working fine but I need it to happen during infill also.

Have not been able to figure out how to make this happen with version 3.0.4 or 3.1.0

    Set combing to none and enable retraction and z-hop and it should no longer drag the nozzle through the infill. I have to disable combing when printing PETG as I get too much dribble in the infill. Hope this helps.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
