True Joris mode for Cura?


Recommended Posts

Posted · True Joris mode for Cura?


Does anyone know if there is a true "Joris" model for Cura?

I remember that in earlier versions there was a "Joris" mode where the Z kept going down steadily, and the print head followed a spiral path around the outside of the form. The result was a continuous spiral of filament. This was perfect for printing thin walled vases, and I (and I am sure others also) miss it very much!

I am aware that there is "Spiralize the outer contour" in the "Expert config" settings, but this seems to do something very different to the original "Joris" mode. Any help with this would be appreciated!

    Joris asked that his name not be used for the feature so it was changed to Spiralize.

    It really doesn't work very well for things other than vases and cups. It also addes a little bit more material at the bottom of the cup where it meets the walls as that is the most likely place for the cup to leak.

    This is a bizarre setting that is (and always was) quite a hack and doesn't work with for example objects with hole through the sides. And it does strange things at the Z seam as the layer above might not start at the same point as the layer below (this was always a problem).

    Be aware also that if you ask for .8mm shell it will do it in one pass so it will be the equivalent of .4mm shell with 200% flow.
