Align seam on specific object

Recommended Posts

I've been chasing down seam problems on the latest versions of cura.  I print mainly curved objects without any corners to hide the layer start/stop.  I was wondering if it was possible to configure cura to place the layer seam on a specific object?  I've tried the seam alignment and layer start/stop but I can't quite get it right.  

Context - I'm trying to print multiple curved objects at once, so a small waste object is worth it if it will help the surface quality and improve the print time.  Retractions are dialed in and not leaving any surface aberrations but I have a recurring problem, not with a bump but a dent where the layer starts and stops.  It can be improved by slowing down the print but it's always present. Generally quality is nice, no under-extrusion etc. 

Thanks!

    • "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.
