Tricolor Filament Settings (clockwise outer perimeter?)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Tricolor Filament Settings (clockwise outer perimeter?)

Hello I got some tri color filament its 3 colors on same strand going whole length.  When I print something it Vase mode it looks great as in one side is one color and another side another color but if I'm not using Vase mode it seems to choose its directions randomly which makes the 3 color affect not work anymore here's an example.  I noticed that using a fixed z seam location makes it more consistently go in same direction but then it will do 20 or 30 layers in opposite direction and will ruin the color effect.  I see there is a setting for Alternating Clockwise and Counter Clockwise but is there a setting for "Only Clockwise outer perimeter"  (or counter-clockwise)

thanks in advance!

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
