staggered layers possible ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · staggered layers possible ?




I need to do tubes. Yes, silly idea anyway. And they should be thin-walled - even more silly.

With standard printig, I get predetermined breaking points between each layer. If I could stagger the layers, that would be much less of a problem and I had a much stronger tube

Can that be achieved in Cura?

    Not without altering the generated gcode. Cura will generally allow only a single Z position within a single layer, and no overlaps between layers. The only exception is spiralized printing ("vase mode"), but that only gives you a single wall.
