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.
