Cura 5 Odd behaviour in Vase mode

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 5 Odd behaviour in Vase mode

Hello All


sorry if this is not the correct place to post this.

I have gone back to Cura 4 for Vase mode printing as Cura 5 is not functioning correctly.


I set up a print with initial Layer being concentric, and bottom layer being lines, Initial Layer also had "Connect Top / Bottom Polygons" Selected

In normal print mode this was respected. In Vase mode it respected the initial layer being concentric, but the second layer was concentric too.

The initial layer also didn't respect the "Connect Top / Bottom Polygons" being selected


So initial slicing done in 5, saved as 3mf and opened in 4.10 where it worked correct without any change required to the slicer setting.


The other point to note is that the concentric looked a lot more sensible on V4.10 than V5


I have attached the Very simple 3MF for you to review,

Rectangular Pen Pot.3mf
