Out of Order Printing of a Disk with Concentric Circles

Posted · Out of Order Printing of a Disk with Concentric Circles

 Hello! I am trying to print a disk made of concentric circles, diameter of 30mm, and is a single layer tall, which is 0.1mm in height. When I went to check the preview, the concentric circles were not printing in an inside-out order like they normally would. I used the same profile settings on a disk with a diameter of 40mm and it printed in the order of inside-out with no problem. I attached a picture of the 30mm disk after about half way through its print, and you can see that I am getting gaps in the printing process. Cura does eventually fill these in, but I need the disk to be printed in order from the inside to the outside. I also attached a .ufp file, so hopefully you can see what I am seeing in better detail. I am pretty new to 3D-printing, so I would rather not have the solution to this problem be to directly go into the g-code. Is there any other way to solve this issue?

    Hi @lewis1im did you try to import the 30mm circle in the same project of 40mm?

    If you want you could share your project file (file - save project) of both circles and then I can take a look.

    Indeed strange, like @obewan it is working correctly in 4.8.

    But if I multiply your 40mm circle in 4.9 and make it 30mm it is printing from inside-out.

        New features
        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.
