Combing leaving blobs on outside walls

Recommended Posts

hi @smartavionics,

 

I am using your new 'not in skin' combing but getting blobs on the outside of the wall at these points (shown below), as mentioned a while back (and the reason i asked you to keep 'only in infil') Cura treats walls as skin rather than just the top and bottom layers and therefore doesn't retract in the walls, hence the material from the non-retract travel is getting deposited in the wall which is often too thin to hide it. In the screen shot below there is a strange 'kick' in the travel at which point the blob appears. Any ideas ?. could the travel be made to not perform this kick, or stick more to the inside of the wall ? i can switch back to 'within infil' and will get retracts in the walls which fixes the problem, but think you mentioned that Cura has issues deciding where infil is and hence the 'only in infil' can sometimes result in travls without retract actually in the top or bottom layers (skin) ?

 

Many 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.
