Cura 14.03 Slicing direction going from top to down

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 14.03 Slicing direction going from top to down

Dear all,

1.In cura 14.03 Windows 8.01 the slicing process is shown from top to down. In that way it is difficult for me to see a simulation of how the object is going to be printed. Is there a reason to show it this way?

2.Can I find somewhere an explanation of the colours used, in the slicingprocess?

Thanks in advance :-P

Once the slicing is done you can go through the layer with the scroll thing at the right side of cura.

For the colors i'm not 100% sure but here is what i understand:

Light Blue is support material

Red is the outer shell

Green is the inner shell

Yellow is infill

Dark blue is the head moves

Correct me if i'm wrong?

No problem :) make sure to watch all the layers before printing it often prevents from failures ;)

Non printing moves. Yes. Also if there is a vertical blue line that is a way to represent "retraction". Retraction is used when printing between 2 or more "islands" in a given slice.
