Brim bug

Recommended Posts

The Brim works fine in general but it clearly fails on this simple cone-shaped object as can be seen in the picture. It looks like Cura calculated the brim based on the largest diameter, not the bottom diameter. I am also curious why the strange shape of the brim on a cylindrical object.

By the way, what a pain to add a picture on this forum!

I have supports on the inside, not outside.

Other items with internal support print correctly but they do not have an overhang.

It is an easy problem to troubleshot since no printing is necessary- it can be seen in Cura's layer mode.

You are correct, I just tested it and turning off the support I get a properly touching brim that is also round. Turning on the support the result is as in the the picture.

One tip: if you only want brim for the outer part of the print (which is usually the case), disable brim and change the skirt settings (change the distance and the amount of lines to 10 or so).

Damn! I wish I tried that ages ago! In fact I now remember reading about this trick but I could have used it a few weeks ago.

    • "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.
