Would like my job to follow a specific print path


Recommended Posts

Posted · Would like my job to follow a specific print path

I'm currently in the experimental phase of a project and I need each print to follow the same print pathm printing. 


To explain with reference to the image I would like the diagonal print path shown within the Red Square in A to follow that of the horizontal print path of the Red Square in B.

Many thanks in advance.

    Hello, I would see 2 possibilities for what you want to achieve:

    The first is more like a workaroud:

    Turn your piece 45°, layers will be parallel and perpendicular to the walls (as far as I know, infill as well)


    Or you can get a parameter to configure print orientation of your top and bottom layers in Cura:


    Sorry It's in french but in the second menu "Coque" (should be something like "shell") You can find a parameter to change direction of the lines.


    Hope this can help a little.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
