Wire Printing has me a bit flummoxed


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Wire Printing has me a bit flummoxed

U2+/Cura 3.2.1. using ABS

I'm new to 3D printing so please explain yourself maybe in more detail than you would normally - I'd like to crack this nut!

 

Wire printing,,, so I selected that under Experimental Settings, put on the 0.8 nozzle, cued Cura on that.  I had Brim selected

but it only printed a single outline and then tried to outline (smaller, separate from single Brim outline) the object's base edge. 

Wouldn't create a uniform line tracing the base, just laying down short/blobby lengths then a blank space, another blob w/a short

line of filament and,,, I Aborted.

Tried it again and same result.

(I use an adhesion sheet on my bed glass.)

 

After searches on Forum and Google  can't find anything on tweaking for the Wire Print function.  Is there a

benevolent guru out there who can enlighten me with some suggestions?  Hope so,
