Cura 3.3 skirt question

Recommended Posts

Just installed Cura 3.3 and using the Ultimaker 2+ default 0.1 profile and only change I made was instead of brim, Skirt.  3mm away from print, 1 layer.  This is what I got...

How sure are you that the bottom is flat? Can you share the model?

No, the bottom is not flat. You can sink the model a tenth of a mm or so into the buildplate, and then the skirt will draw as expected.

I think this video on cleaning the nozzle is a better alternative to a skirt

I know this is an old topic.. and I still haven't installed the _latest_ Cura (running on 3.3.1 right now) and I just got _this_ weird skirt.. first time _ever_. If I change to brim, it's placed correctly around the model. I'll install the latest update and see if it does better ?

 

Quick update: rotating my model 90 degrees around the Z-axis results in a correctly placed skirt..
