G2, G3 generated in slicer?


Recommended Posts

Posted · G2, G3 generated in slicer?

I set up a screw hole with a difference in radius of 2 mm so there would be 5 passes of .4 mm arcs.  Cura creates 2 outer and 2 inner walls, and the inside fill wall is just a bunch of short segments.  Looking closely at the pattern, the walls are short segments.  How can I tell the slicer to generate g2 or g3 gcodes for good arcs?

Thanks.

    From the picture it seems that this is because you have shell thickness that equals 4 passes and the short segments are infill. The quickest fix should be adjusting the shell-wall thickness.

    Thank you!!  I made the radius 0.1 mm larger and got a smooth infill.  I used to bypass slicers and just create gcodes for my projects because they were simple, I figured if I can do it, professionals can do it.  Now I know better 🙂
