Travel Moves During Spiralize Outer Contour Printing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Travel Moves During Spiralize Outer Contour Printing

Hello!

 

I am running into a weird issue where there are many travel moves during a vase mode / "spiralize outer contour" print.  The resulting print ends up containing lots of blobs from the starts / stops of the travel moves.  printer works fine with other geometry when using the same profile, but for some reason it now makes z-hops between layers.  Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's a detail of a successful print without the start / stop travel moves.

I changed the surface mode to normal and it looks a lot better in the layer view. BTW, spiralize is intended to be used with solid models rather than just shells.

Hi @smartavionics,

 

The surface -> normal switch fixed my issues! I'll work with my designer to get solid models instead of shells in the future.  Thanks for your help!
