Optimize Wall Printing Order stops working when Brim


Recommended Posts

Posted · Optimize Wall Printing Order stops working when Brim

Im running Cura 3.3.1 on Windows 10.


I've just noticed that Optimize Wall Printing Order stops working as expected when Brim is selected instead of Skirt.

I've noticed when OWPO works properly it draws all lines for the same walls in one go without travel, but when selecting Brim it prints one line at a time,

so it goes to the first wall, draws one line of that wall, travels to the next wall and draws one line, travels back to the previous wall and draws the second line etc...


Pictures illustrating what happens:


With Skirt


With Brim

    Yeah this sure looks like  a bug.  Can you post this info on github?  You have to create a github account if you don't have one (it's free though) but worth the trouble as this is much more likely to get fixed if you post there and please include the 2 photos:

    This regression in 3.3 has already been fixed. The story is that the optimization didn't get the wall ordering right in a particular set of circumstances that included brim being printed and so someone decided that the best thing to do was to completely disable the optimization for the first layer when the brim was enabled. What should have happened instead was that the problem in the optimizer was investigated and fixed. That has now been done so service should be returned to normal in 3.4.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
