infill and nozzle travel


Recommended Posts

Posted · infill and nozzle travel

hello, i was excited to learn about the infill patterns and shell patterns!  i had some odd looking flat surfaces.  anyway, i switched shell top/bottom pattern and bottom pattern initial layer to lines. in the preview, i'm using 3.1, it looks great.  in the actual print - which failed for another reason - it looked like the attached.  as close as i can figure, the out-of-place lines are similar to the travel lines which are previewed in blue on my screen.


is there a way to eliminate this from printing? or is it something other than travel lines?

    update. indeed someone else has had this issue :) i saw that retraction seemed to be the issue.  in cura i was able to disable combing mode, i set it to off. then i made sure retraction was enabled.  i did nothing with z hop when retracted.  the 1st layer looks better with no angled line in it and i'd guess that the infill will not have those lines either.

        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.
