Flat layer under features/walls being sliced like it has the features of the next layer

Posted · Flat layer under features/walls being sliced like it has the features of the next layer

Hi, I've started to notice an issue recently where featureless flat layers directly under the start of layers with features (walls, infill, etc) mimic the features on the next layer, rather than slicing like a regular flat, featureless layer, and presumable adding a lot of unnecessary time and movement. I've added some pictures to clarify what that looks like. The first is what should be a completely featureless, flat layer, but for some reason has a very complicated travel path. The second shows that that same layer is indeed printing as if in unnecessary anticipation for the next layer. And the third pic shows the next layer, which is (or at least should be) the very first layer with any features on it. I'm relatively new to 3d printing, so maybe I'm missing something simple. Any guidance on how I make be able to change this would be appreciated. Thank you!
