Weird Printing path in Ultimaker Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Weird Printing path in Ultimaker Cura

Hi everyone, i'm quite new in 3d printing and i have this issue. I don't know why it does this, but i would like a smooth surface and not this crazy path. Any tips on setting this up ?

I have a creality ender 3 v2.

This is the model i try to print


Here is a picture of the "weird" parth, the final result in the slicer and my printings settings too.

Do you have any tips to prevent this kind of thing from happening ?

    Hard to tell without having a closer look at the model, but could it be that the top surface is not 100% flat?

    By the way, the top surface is flat because the normals of the model are pointing inside-out. This *may* be indicative of more issues with your model.
