"Scattered dots" bug in latest Cura

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
