Temp tower in cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · Temp tower in cura

Trying to print a temp tower in cura. Using the change AtZ. Create 10 changes at 5mm. Starting at 225 down to 180 every 5mm. However, first one prints at 225, but second level drops to 180. What am i doing wrong? following the instructions on the web, from different sites.

    This comes up once in a while.  Earlier versions didn't like Zhops.  What version of Cura and do you happen to have Z hops enabled in the print?

    If you use By Layer it should be OK.

    Been playing around. Found a video where the guy describes how to count the layers, deduct base divide remaining layers etc. The other instructions i found were not so clear. Got it working, with a pre sliced g-code file.
