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.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
