Having the same issue and I have also no solution up to now...

Z-hop is a first shot in addition to combing, but my impression is that combing or "stay inside a part" is also not working propperly.



Yes... I think the same as I can see the results even trying a lot of configs trying to avoid that problem.


Using single color this issue is a little bit ugly in result but is not expressive like using dual or multi colors does (my picture show how this situation can be expressive to a bad result at all, using dual colors)


Tks to add you reply in this topic.

    • "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.
