Cura corners: creating "multiple passes" instead of smooth corner


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura corners: creating "multiple passes" instead of smooth corner



Is anyone able to help me work out why Cura has created gcode for this corner that seems to jump forwards/backwards instead of laying down one smooth extrusion? Line width is 0.4. Is there a setting I can change to prevent this? I assume it's because it's a rounded corner? Later in the print the head returns to this same corner on this layer and again puts down extrusion, which is causing the print to have a raised edge at this point. Infill of 0% still shows this behaviour. I've put the gif here, hope it works: GIF here


Thank you
