Cura 4.9 Z Seam issues


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.9 Z Seam issues

Hi, I’m having issues with the z seam on cura 4.9. On a round print the z seam has a big gap if set to user specified or sharpest corner and if set to random the loads of little gaps appear all over the print. Does anyone know how to get rid of the gaps? 

Thanks B3AC8597-8998-443B-BEA0-E403DE1920E3.thumb.jpeg.417fabcb5aa26cb4f69cf8fc798d79ec.jpeg048551B9-37C1-4E2B-BE1E-2821AEC761B6.thumb.png.c57a55eefd5a4ef96cc42b8da0f257c7.png

    Random will leave a dot at any point on the exterior which does make it look like there are zits all over.  The best you can really do with round objects is to allow the Z seam to be a line.  That way you can turn the piece around and your opponent has to stare at it.

    I add 0.1 wipe distance, set the Z seam to User Specified, then Back, Front, or whatever and then set the Seam Corner Preference to None.  There's going to be a Z seam and there isn't any place to hide it on round objects.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
