Seamhandling/-hiding in Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Seamhandling/-hiding in Cura

Hallo UM and community,


I'm new both to 3d printing and Cura. Looking for a decent slicer my present test is with Cura.

Having tried KISSlicer and Prusaslicer so far, I like Cura but have a question I just can't answer myself:

The internet is full of questions and help on seamhiding and mostly the answer is: you can try but you won't really get rid of them (especially on round objects).


Now KISSlicer has a seamhandling using gap and depth that even for me as a total beginner solved the problem in my test prints (using a 50mm disc at 2mm height).


Why is it, that none of the big players doesn't include anything like that? I can't believe they don't know about this technique.

Is it because of copyright or something like that?

I think that many people would appreciate such a feature.
