Combining spiral mode / fuzzy skin gives diagonal line


Recommended Posts

Posted · Combining spiral mode / fuzzy skin gives diagonal line

Hi all,


I've printed this object in Spiralize outer contour mode and the experimental fuzzy skin enabled.

The result is really great! Only thing that's weird: there is an obvious diagonal line which spiral's from top to bottom.

It is almost as if the average skin density changes (gradually decreases) from the start of a layer towards the end of a layer...

Does anyone have any idea what causes this?

FYI; without fuzzy skin this line is not visible. It clearly is caused by a change in density of the fuzzy skin ( perhaps in combination with the spiralize mode).


Thanks a lot for any reactions and tips!

Update: I've since upgraded to Cura 4.2.1... the line is now no longer diagonal, but vertical and still highly visible. I really wonder if no one before has ever experimented with these settings?
