Hello.

I've just tested my first spiralise and I'm blown away by the outside edge quality, it's phenomenal. However the horizontal parts of the model failed, they have nothing to sit upon.

I wonder if there is a way ti combine spiralise with traditional infill printing? The issues with out edge quality seem to be down to retraction blobs and acceleration and jerk. Changing all the settings has some effect but retraction blobs are still an issue, if the reiteration always happened on the infill, then head performed an outward glide whilst creating infill, printed the outer edge, went back in and then retracted again this would possibly improve the quality?

Also if no reiteration needs to happen, it's a single piece buy you want infill, no retraction needs to ever happen.

Is this something that could happen in future releases?

Cheers.

    :) Ye, but spiralise has no infix so cannot handle most models. A combination of that to do the outer wall, and infill where all the retraction blobbyness can occur, would be wonderful.

    what spiralize does is giving you a steady z move. so instead moving the z axis after each layer it dies move the whole time just a little bit. this is great for vases so you have a very clean outer surface with no stops or retraction.

    know you know why u cant combine infill and spiralize.

    edit:

    oh i think i get you wrong. u didn't really want to combine it.

    But i think if the head went from infill to the outerline while extruding, you would probably also see these spot on the outside. And also the head have to get back into the infill, so the spot would look like this:

    i hope you get what i mean :D

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
