Cura very inefficient print/travel order


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura very inefficient print/travel order

Hi all - I am seeing very inefficient travel/movement for a print where the order of printing just seems to make no sense.  3mf file is attached and optimise print wall printing order is on.


As shown in the attached image [gif showing movement also in attached .zip file] then rather than printing each rectangle section in turn, moving from left to right along each of the 3 main areas, it does a couple, jumps ahead, and even moves on to a completely different side before returning.  The result is not a ruined print by any means, but it leaves stringing due to the excessive / unnecessary travelling the print head does when it could simple be moving around the model with minimal travel required.

Any thoughts on any settings that could help this would be appreciated!
