Cura slicing rings in strange manner

Posted · Cura slicing rings in strange manner

I'm trying to print some simple ring-like objects to use as stitch markers for my wife's knitting.  However, cura keeps slicing these parts so that it prints a partial ring and then tries to print the other side.  This keeps resulting in inconsistent prints, and I can't figure out what setting I should be changing (if any) to prevent this.  


Does anyone have any idea what is going on or how to fix this?

    There might be a problem with the model.  You can see that the red Outer Wall is printing from the OD to the ID and that really shouldn't happen with a simple ring.  If that condition is only occurring on the top layer then maybe the model isn't flat??


    Post the model file and I can take a look.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
