Cura starting a circle in mid air (Not able to use support)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura starting a circle in mid air (Not able to use support)

Hey guys, i'm new to the 3d printing world and i've learned a lot this week so far, but here is my first design (A bong) haha..

so my problem is that is a cone at first then the up pipe is a hollow cilinder, but cura wants to start that layer from the inner part which is not possible since there is not support and i can't use any because it would be unremovable and it would not work also because that's where the water will be and smoke wouldn't pass thru. how can i make cura start this layer from the outer part so it can hook to the cone?

in Cura under Shell there is a setting called 'outer before inner walls'

This should print the outside wall first and then inner walls.

 

I dont know what material you are printing with, but you should look at the temperature from the water and the smoke to make sure it does not melt or deform the filament. That would not be very healty to inhale 😉 .

 

Hope this solves your problem.
