Travelling in Cura 3.2.1

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I recently installed Cura 3.2.1. The products I am printing for my wastewater irrigation systems are mainly cylindrical and now I find a LOT (!) of unnecessary traveling across the walls of the products. It appears that now every next layer needs to start at a different point more-or-less opposite the point where it finished printing previous layers. This gives a lot of unnecessary movement and poor quality. What am I missing here??

I tried to import the profile I used for Cura 2.1.2 but Cura 3.2.1 didn't accept the file. So I tried as best as possible to enter same settings manually but there's so much more boxes that can be ticked and missed. Any advise much appreciated.

Hello,

 

Could you post the file here so we can take a look?

 

I believe there is an option somewhere that does that to avoid the 'line/scarring' thing that happens sometimes when all layers start at the same location. Perhaps you turned it on accidentally? I forgot how it is called, haven't tried it yet.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
