My Printer changes direction

I use cura with my Duplicator Mini i3. Most of my prints, i use a brim.  Bed adhesion is ok.  The problem i noticed is that when the brim is done, the printer changes direction to print and often leaves either a blob or a small line of filament that after gets in the way. Is there a way to fix this? Is it a Cura settings problem? Thanks for any help.

    Hey @doubird1,

     

    Do you have a picture of your problem, and a  project file for us? It contains the printer and settings we need for troubleshooting.  To save a project file go to File -> Save project.

     

    I think your issue might be solvable with the correct combing and retraction settings. 
    Or you could be running into an issue similar to this one:

      • 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
