Changing layer angles?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Changing layer angles?

Good evening... First time poster... I have a rostock max v2 that i love, but ive only recently started using Cura, which.... wait for it..... I love..

its been the best slicer ive used so far for quality on this large print im working on.

Question i have is as the first layer is being drawn, then filled in, it always prints on 45 degree angle from the permiter.. is there a way to make it print perpendicular?

Reason i ask, is at the very top most layer thats visible, often times the angles look terrible, and the perps, look much better.

thank you

Just rotate the part? The infill lines will keep printing in the same direction relative to the printer so by rotating the part on the platform you're achieving what you're after.

I have to say I would have likely never thought about that... Seems so easy, but I think thats awesome... 45 degrees one way should get it there... thank you sir.
