Rough edges on thinly sliced curves.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Rough edges on thinly sliced curves.

This is a new problem that started when I try to upgrade to any version above 4.13.1.  When I slice my files with thinly sliced curves I'm getting a very rough edge.  It looks like the engine in 5+ is attempting too much precision - is this a new setting?  You can see how smooth 4.13 is and 5 (I've tried all the recent versions & alphas) is super jumbled up.  Dark (bad) is v 5.2.2   Light is v 4.13.1.  Anyone have ideas?    I thought I would ask here before submitting a GitHub bug report.

    There are settings in the Wall section that will fix much of that.  "Wall Transition Length" and "Wall Transition Angle" are two of them.  Another setting is the Line Width but you can only drop a .4 nozzle to about .35mm.  Features that come to a "feather edge" are tough.
