movement not required!

Recommended Posts

Posted · movement not required!

Hi all,

I have an issue with movement: the object is very simple and it wouldn't require any movement between layers: infact, if I set to 1 perimeter, it is smooth and clean. But I need the piece to be filled so I need to increase to 2 perimeters and it starts to show strange movements between some points.


Any suggestions?


Thanks in advance,

The string lines are the shortest distance between the points and the arrowhead so Cura may have decided that it's the most efficient path.

Have you tried Combing mode?  It makes for a lot of movement on a part like that since it would want to stay over the walls at all times.  Moving the Z seam and the Layer Start points can have an effect too.  That's a tough part though with those inside corners.  Have you tried rotating the part on the bed to put one of the short points right at 6 o'clock?  Then put the Z seam in "front".
