"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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
