"Scattered dots" bug in latest Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · "Scattered dots" bug in latest Cura

Hi All,

I noticed this in the latest Cura (14.01) that I see the print head hopping around

and placing random dots along the outer shell.

See it hopping in this video (I have z-hop plugin, but this is not caused by the plugin, the same happens without it)

 

This is a complex part, but it also happens in much simpler shapes.

I had to stop using Cura for now, as this hopping behavior messes up the print.

Any ideas ?

Thanks.

PS. I printed the same object with Slic3r and it printed fine.

Look at it in slice view in Cura and try turning off infill by setting infill % to 0.

It's filling up thin wall sections, no bug, a feature.

And then what ? What am I looking for ?

You are looking for the scattered dots to disappear.

Daid wrote the program so obviously he knows it better than me but I thought if infill was 0% you might not get those "scattered dots".

It can also be part of the bottom/top infill. So setting that to 0, and the infill % to 0, they might be gone.
