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?
