setting the X & Y start points for new/next layer begin

Recommended Posts

hi, i noticed a small base plate i use often, and have printed a few times now, in different modes, default, fine, etc... has a small vertical bead in the same spot on each different print of the same item,,,same spot.

another forum for the printer i use mentioned that its probably where the new layer  begin each layer, and i could change the start x & y coordinates (as well as lower the temp a bit...)

 

so my question is , i see in the the attached picture, the settings area for the 'layer start X & layer start Y' but i dont know / understand what to set this to, in order to have the layer star on the inner walls of all items i print, i never want the seam on the outer walls... so what do i actually set this to, as i dont know the exact x & y of the items im printing/slicing in cura. or where to even set the start point...

thanks everyone.

mm

    • "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.
