Newb question: Printing Seems to be Back to Front


Recommended Posts

Posted · Newb question: Printing Seems to be Back to Front

I am new to all this. However, it seems that Cura seems to want to print things back to front. Even the preview

window shows the tool typically wanting to start in the back and moving to the front (Y-axis). This makes

it difficult to watch the progress, because of the head of the printer is in the way.


If it printed front to back, it would make seeing progress easier, right? There must be a reason for this. However,

I have not seen a setting nor have I seen any other mentions in searching. Weird.


Am I missing a setting or a reason for back to front? Thanks!

    Ah I figured it out. It's based on the Z Seam settings. By default, they were set to begin in the back, hence, printing back to front.
