Printer and Gcode Print Parallel to Support

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Printer and Gcode Print Parallel to Support

I have about 2 centimeters of support holding up a large flat section of my model. Cura layer view shows the extruder moving perpendicular to the supports like it should. The printer and gcode are printing/showing it moving parallel to the support making the support fairly useless.

 

How do I handle this?

What is shown on CURA should be the instructions that will be in the gcode sent to the printer... Seems like a bug to me.

What are you using to see what the printer will do and find the difference between CURA and the gcode?

Octoprint's layer view as well as what is coming out of the printer itself.

I never used Octoprint myself, so I can't really help you. Others here are more familiar with it, I'm sure they'll be able to help.
