Cura 4.8 bridging still so-so


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura 4.8 bridging still so-so

I just moved to Cura 4.8 and bridging is still flimsy. Below, a gif showing what happens when bridging with a skewed model on the plate. It's on purpose, a model can have bridges all over the place impossible to align properly. The shell/inner wall is printed as it should, from end to end over the walls, but the rest is a mess, printing some blobs here and there or starting over the recently printed bridge walls, which is the same as saying in mid air




Here, first the model sliced in Cura 4.8, where you can see exactly what happens. Then the same model with same orientation in another slicer, that detects everything in red as "bridge", so it prints as it should, from end to end




In another post, someone mentioned the posibility of an option, under bridge settings, to always start bridges over walls, but I'm not sure if that will solve the issue, because even if Cura detects the bridge, is still reading the outer walls of the bridge as "shell/inner wall", while the rest is "bottom", unless it's clear that the "start over walls" excludes the own bridge walls
