Cura missing bridges!

Posted (edited) · Cura missing bridges!

with Cura v4.13, i tried to print bridges without support.
It seems to work pretty good, except that in half of the model, the first bridge layer is treated as second layer!
I don't seem to find any way to control it.
In the attached video i removed "bridge has multiple layers" and that shows that the missing bridges are treated as bottom layer.
these missing part lie at slightly different height than previous ones, so should be treated as a separate set of bridges. Instead Cura is trying to unify it all, with the result of missing the first bridge layer, that inevitably cause the second layer to be along the model instead of across, with all the consequent problems.

Is there any way to fix this? I would be happy if i could simply disable the alternating pattern, and only have one direction for those lines

    Hey @paoletto,


    Thanks for your report 👍
    This reminds me of https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/13623

    Can you check for me if your Bridge Skin Support Threshold is high enough? 
    You can read more about the setting in the settings guide.
