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.

    Strange, loading your project into cura 4.8, both discs print from inside-out,  but not in ver 4.9

    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.
