Prime Tower Layer #5 Infill?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Prime Tower Layer #5 Infill?

Hello! I'm new to Cura but love the new features and want to get away from S3D. I'm printing dual extrusion and when using the prime tower noticed that layer #5 fills in the hollow prime tower which is unsupported by base layers 1-4. Photos attached showing the cross section at layers 4, 5 and the last layer of the print. What feature can I turn on/off to fix this? Because it is unsupported it drags across my print. Thanks!

Did you even find a solution to this problem friend? I'm having the same issue.

I never had the issue, and it looks like a bug since it definitely shouldn't be doing that.

That being said, if you're using UM materials, the prime tower is mostly useless. Settings for UM materials on CURA are fine-tuned enough that you don't need it. I haven't sued a prime tower in a while and I do dual printing frequently, especially with PVA  for support. Can't say for dual printing with other brands.
