line direction of bridge first layer


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · line direction of bridge first layer

Is it possible to set the line direction of the first layer of a bridge? I have a void of 2 by 14 cm which needs to be bridged, but I cannot use supports since it is inside a box with holes. It now is sliced with the first layer lines over the void in the longest direction, and starting in the middle of the void. the first version of the model I printed was good, the direction of the bridge layer was 45 degrees there, but the model changed and I can't reproduce it.

 

I tried with setting top/bottom line directions, adjusting object rotation, layer thickness, initial layer thickness, adjusting the height of the ceiling in the model itself, nothing helps.
