UM3 Stuttering on circles

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · UM3 Stuttering on circles

Trying to print an cylinder sliced with cura (happens with both with 3.3.0 and 3.2.1) and the print head stutters a little while printing the circles, it almost even pauses for a split second. This is causing the surface to have little blobs on it.

After doing a bit of reading, I've found that the Marlin firmware does this with very high resolution circles / curves.

I have exported the STL at a quite high resolution from solidworks which is something I've always done.

 

What I don't understand is, why when slicing the same model with Simplify3D, the printer doesn't do this, what is the slicer doing differently that stops this from happening ?

I'd much rather use Cura so would like to know if there is something I can do to help with this.

 

Thanks

For now it seems like you can only increase the maximum resolution, export your stl files at medium resolution or print slower. 

I hope Ultimaker will do something about this rather soon :fingerscrossed:
