How to change layer starting point ?


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to change layer starting point ?


Shortest and sharpest corner are both fixed Z lines like user specified.

If i pick random it creates alot of travel moves.

Is there a way to nudge it a bit every layer without creating travel moves?

Like with "wipe nozzle" on simplify3d

I can wipe nozzle on Cura too but it stays on the same point.

    If you want to spread it over the object, you can only use random and then the print head as to travel to this position. There is no option to have it "a little bit random" and with minimal travel moves.


    Personally I prefer to place the Z seam to a corner or position where it doesn't disturb the model or where I can easily remove it in post processing. So I mostly use "user specified" and sometimes use the expose seam settings to sand it away.
