Mysterious skin layer using Lines at 0°


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Mysterious skin layer using Lines at 0°

(I am running Cura 4.3.0 so this could just be a bug that had already been fixed.)


I have attached a screenshot at layer 53, this is the top layer of an internal channel that cannot be reached so I placed a support suppression block over this area (I will be unable to fish out support from this channel).


As you can see, in the Shell section the Top/Bottom Line Directions are [] which should default to [45°,135°], and indeed does, for every other layer.


Yet on this first 'roof' layer over top of the partially unsupported channels, Cura unexpectedly changed to Lines at 0°.


(In the Shell section, if I change Top/Bottom Pattern and Bottom Pattern Initial Layer to Concentric, for example, this layer 53 still comes out Lines at 0°).


By the way, in the Experimental section I have Alternate Skin Rotation disabled.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
