Strange ironing path

Posted · Strange ironing path

Hi all,


I'm a new user to Cura, before I was using PrusaSlicer. But I really like the support generation in Cura. The supports are so much cleaner and easier to remove.


But i'm having a little issue with ironing, I don't see any logic in the ironing path that Cura follow's. Selecting Monotic Ironing doesn't make a difference. The left side of the prints is good, but for the right side it makes an unnecessary hop (both sides are equal only mirrored). That wouldn't be a problem if I didn't make any scars, unfortunatly it leaves a mark on the right side. 


When I change the setting Top/Bottom Line direction to [90] this also effects the ironing path. In a good way because than the top is OK. But this 90 angle also effects the bottom and that give  other problems with strenght of the model. 


I was wondering if someone know's why Cura is making this strange path with the default ironing options? I've attached the gcode file (only the top part)

        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.
