Cura 3.3.1 displays filament usage in reverse order

Recommended Posts

Cura 3.3.1 is displaying expected filament usage incorrectly for some models, but not for others. In erroneous displays it is showing extruder 1 and 2 filaments the wrong way round, ie extruder 2 then extruder 1. See the screen grab - the model prints in orange PLA using 1.47m of orange PLA and 0.24m of PVA support from extruder 2.

 

I have attached the stl file, which is generated from Fusion 360. The actual print is fine.

 

Some stl files show this oddity, but others have the extruder filament usage the expected way round, ie extruder 1 then extruder 2.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
