Changing Ooze Build Shield Angle

Recommended Posts

Are you going to offer the option to change the Ooze shield build angle? Even just two options, one vertical and one auto (which would be current configuration) would be nice. Someone else also had the issue where the Ooze shield collapsed and delaminated from itself due to its current aggressive build angle setting:




  1. The ooze shield is a bit ambitious in the overhang angles that it tries to achieve and often collapses and/or delaminates (as seen in the above image). In slicer the ooze shield is vertical all the way up - this makes it easier to print but it is now further away from your object. Ideally we would have a Cura-like shield with a configurable maximum-angle.

    • "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.
