How to change printing direction

Posted (edited) · How to change printing direction

Hello,
I would like to change my printing direction become one same direction. Currently, it's run zig zag, I know it's for optimizing but that doesn't matter for me.

giphy.gif

as we can see from the gif, it's printing on zig zag, I want it print on the same direction, ex: top to bottom and not continue in the middle.

 

Is there any configuration I can try to change the direction, or I should change something from the source in CuraEngine?

I attached the project file.

 

Thank you in advance.

    I read your question 30 times.  I read the answer 5 times.  I think I understand.  In the picture above it goes top to bottom and then the very next second it goes bottom to top.

     

    You want always top to bottom.

     

    @smartavionics - is there a control for this?

     

    Why do you want this?  For a smoother top layer?  Have you tried the ironing features?  Turn on "enable ironing".  There are a lot of things to play with in ironing.  I have heard that a speed of 40 gives a smoother result than the default of 20.

    I am sorry, I think my question is not clear enough. @smartavionics has been replied my question at Github page ( https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/5034 )

    I also made my question more clear there. the reason why I need it can print on same direction because the metal wire feeder only goes on one direction.

    To @Carbon or anyone else who may know. I do understand the steps explained to change direction yet no "options" or that of an explanation of what to type is included in cura ([wink wink nudge nudge]but needs to be) because I've tried other symbols or percents but don't understand what to enter to get the desired direction. Thanks

      • 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
