Prime tower start point change?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Prime tower start point change?

New to Cura after trying to get a y-adapter setup working.  Great software, thanks.

 

So I'm trying to switch between pla and petg with a y adapter setup.  Got a question, or maybe suggestion.  After swapping filament the pla pulls more plastic out of the hotend than the petg does.  Cura starts out printing the prime tower in the middle and corners in a seeming random manor.  Further on nearly always starts in the corners. Unfortunately it always starts in the same corner with the same material.  So I get a every other layer issue in the one corner.  Is it possible to rotate the corner is starts from?

 

Thanks
Cory

I don't see any options to randomise the z-seam on the prime tower :/

You could disable the prime tower and add a dummy 2nd object which you can print instead of the prime tower. There you can take advantage of the "Z Seam Alignment" setting.
