Top layer missing border?

Posted · Top layer missing border?

 

I'm new to Cura so bear with me as I try and describe this problem, hopefully the pictures will help.

 

When the print gets to the point that it is building a top layer it does not put a continuous border around the layer causing the layer ends to drop into the infill voids.

 

It seems to me that it should print a continuous border before starting the layer fill so that the ends of the layer can attach to the border.

 

Does this make sense?

 

Thanks

    hi,

    it would really be better if an outside line is printed first and then the coverlayer connects with the outside line.

    The only possibility to avoid this trouble is, as far as I know, to use more infill .

    I agree, do you know of any way to get Cura to do this?

      • 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
