Weird travel path

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

i have an issue with Cura, and thought maybe someone know a workaround.
If you look at my screenshot, you can see that despite the fact that combing is activated, Cura is making the head travel out of the print. the weirdest part its that it is not the shortest path, the head is making a long U path, leaving unpleasant blob on the surface of my print. 
Do you guys also have the issue? Do you know which settings i can try for that?

Thank you.

Combing (no-retract travel moves) does not cross the air boundaries between parts. In your image above, there are two parts (a part as far as Cura is concerned is a region that is surrounded by air). So it will do a retraction in the above travel move. Do you have z-hop enabled? If not, perhaps enabling z-hop will make the travel occur in a straight line.

    • 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.
