Cura skirt bug?

Recommended Posts

Cura 15 on Win. I think this is an old problem even in previous versions.

Brim: Extra build plate adhesion on inside and outside base layer attached to the printed object.

It works as expected.

Skirt: Print a priming/adjustment layer ring outside of the object. Offset xx mm & number of loops.

That too works as expected, except if the offset is set to zero.

I would expect that to print a layer attached to the base as number of specified loops on the outside as a skirt with zero clearance. In effect it would work as an outside only brim which is what is needed for some applications.

Unfortunately it turns into a brim printing both inside and outside!

I am trying to print objects with a clean interior (vertical tube) and both brim and skirt will not allow that.

By the way, the expert skirt menu lists skirts as "Line Count".

Brim is listed as "Amount" It too ought to be "Line Count".

I know, picky, picky :-)

    • "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.
