Cura 3.2.1 - Is Combing realy working?!

Recommended Posts

Cura doesn't like to make large detours while combing. A detour length setting as in S3D would be nice.

However you can maybe improve the situation by disabling the "avoid printed parts" option. But you probably will not get rid of all the cross travels.

Using the "optimize perimeter" option might also help.

I'm guessing cura isn't smart enough to figure out it can follow those skinny walls.  

 

Better to make it so you never ever see stringing.  I can usually tune my machine so that this amount of travels wouldn't matter and would be invisible.  Try printing all speeds at the same speeds (speed changes can cause issues) and try printing at 25mm/sec and as cold as possible - maybe 190C.  See if that eliminates all strings.

Does your printer have an extruder with bowden tube? In this case: IMHO a certain amount of stringing is unavoidable for flexible materials.

(For a direct extruder you could simple turn on retractions...)

 

You can fight against it (a bit) by printing as slow and cool as possible (but it needs some heat for a good layer bonding...).

And choose the speed for travel moves as high as possible on your printer.

    • "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.
