Bad skirts, brims, rafts


Recommended Posts

Posted · Bad skirts, brims, rafts



Cura 4.5 on Windoze 10, Ender 3 Pro and Tinkercad. Occasionally Cura will give bad skirts, rafts, brims (see image). 


I can't narrow any commonality as to when it will work correctly or when it won't.


Could Tinkercad be the issue?

    Perhaps. This often happens if the bottom of the model is not completely flat. Try sinking the model into the buildplate slightly by setting its z value slightly negative.
