Feature request relating z-seam options

Posted · Feature request relating z-seam options

Cura seems to prefer locating the z-seam at corners  even when set to "random". Corners can concentrate physical stress, so irregularities/artifacts occurring at corners could compromise the strength of some models. It would be useful in some instances to have the z-seam positioned on the flatter areas of a model or the areas of least curvature.

    Sometimes I've found Cura can follow settings even after they're hidden by other settings. Try setting Z Seam Alignment to something else, which should reveal Seam Corner Preference, set that to None then try changing the alignment back to random.
