Zits problem appearing in travel moves?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Zits problem appearing in travel moves?


I am new to Cura and moved to it because I had problem with zits in S3D, but now I also got them in Cura. I run a Corexy built printer. Hope that someone could help me with this!

I have narrowed down the problem to a very small travel move that cura does exactly after completing the whole outer layer. The first image shows where cura starts the outer layer.

The second image shows a small move over the already completed layer that makes a zit appear.
The third image shows the zits, and they are all placed where I can view in the preview where cura makes this very little travel move. I have tried many different settings but I cant get rid of that little move... So there is probably a setting for this but I havent found it! Plz help needed.

The stl is an regular 3dbenchy, attaching my curaprofile and the gcode generated

    Thought that someone could have a pointer on what to adjust to get rid of this issue?! Have searched the forum but no information found regarding this (but maybe I use the wrong search words?)...

    Hello Perolalars, 


    I'm too a beginner with Cura. I think you'll find the answer into the TRAVEL section where you can specify Zhop and retraction, if that helps at all...

    @Framar Thank you for your input, but I have tried all that already. I managed to get rid of the little movement along the outer wall (Outer Wall Wipe Distance) but there is still a very short stop in movement, both at the start of the outer perimeter and at the stop that makes my zits. As you can see (barely) in the image there is like a "double" zit where that layer starts and finishes.... and I have not find any settings (yet) addressing this issue. Thought that going from S3D to Cura would Cure (hehe) that...

      • 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
