Wire Printing has me a bit flummoxed

Recommended Posts

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,

    • "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.
