Bug: Bridge settings prevent changing direction of lines.

I've seen others complain about this (in 2019), but I haven't seen bug raised yet - hence the post.

 

Enabling "Bridge settings" defaults to the bridge taking the longest path from point to point, and this is not configurable.

 

I've attached a series of images - I've changed the values for the top and bottom line directions (0 and 90°), I've tried changing the top/bottom line pattern, and changing the orientation of the part - none of these work - as you can see in the images the lines run the full length of the part in each case. When I disable bridge settings the lines run across the part as they should.

 

Please change the default behaviour and/or expose the bridge direction variable for the user to set as desired.

Thanks

So I decided I would use Change at Z post process to add a lower speed for this particular layer as a work around, after checking the gcode in Cura, I needed to restart. After re-starting, the problem doesn't exist. I now have bridge settings enabled, and the line direction is across the part - not along it.

 

I guess the bug should be updated to "sometimes"? I definitely wasn't working earlier, but now it is.

 

So weird!

    Did you ever find the solution to get cura to do the shortest path instead of the longest path when bridging?
