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.

    • "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.
