Optimizing layer start and end points to prevent travel
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!
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.
With the Custom setting button turned on and the Setting Visibility turned to All then in the Travel Section you will find "Layer Start X" and "Layer Start Y".
There is no such setting for the infill. It will often be as you want it (start near the z seam or layer start point) but for different types of infill patterns it may be different and if you change the Infill Line Directions it may be different.
