Why Random Build Order or Unnecessary long Travel Moves

I have a part with a large section of interior build similar to the picture. When S3D is building these squares it doesn't build in a logical order such as first row, left to right but rather does one square then jump across the part to do another then back for another then across to another area. T...

Re: sliced model has gaps

Go to the Mesh menu and select "Separate Connected Surfaces" to see if that fixes it. Yep! That did it! Wow. Now that makes me wonder what else this thing does that I don't know about. Massive thanks!!! :mrgreen: What that tells you is you may have issues with the model and need to fix it. In most ...

Re: Print stopping when USB Bus changed.

It really has nothing to do with the app. It is between the OS and the hardware.

You could try installing an add on USB card, if possible, that would then separate it from the system USB setup but I am not sure that would even work and different.

Re: Print stopping when USB Bus changed.

Yes, this is behavior from the USB. When something changes it basically resets and you loose the connection long enough to stall a print. Most USB devices don't notice it.
Printing via USB is risky as you are finding out!
Power settings and other items also can affect prints while using USB.

Extruder Path To Avoid Crossing Infil Or Body Of Part

Not sure what you would call this! A setting to make the extruder follow outer perimeters of a model so as to avoid travel moves crossing the body/infill of a print. The idea would be to help avoid collision between the nozzle and internal parts of the model such as smaller pillars the nozzle could ...

Re: How To Avoid Extruder Travel over Internal Area Of Print

Thanks Doug, that is what I thought. I do use it on another part to keep the extruder travel within the boundaries of the part. Works well there.

Re: How To Avoid Extruder Travel over Internal Area Of Print

Have you tried experimenting with the Avoid Crossing Outlines for Travel Movements setting in the Advanced tab of the profile? I thought of that and set it but it looks like in the preview that it is still crossing it. Maybe it takes a really high number to get it to stick to the perimeters which w...

Re: How To Avoid Extruder Travel over Internal Area Of Print

What is happening is I have these areas inside the print. The top edges of each little rectangle start to curl a slight bit when they reach their final couple layers which is unavoidable. This printers travel moves are extremely fast (350mm/s x/y) and set by the maker in their S3D profile. The nozzl...

Re: How To Avoid Extruder Travel over Internal Area Of Print

Yes and may be my only recourse.
I just thought it didn't work so well on machines where the build platform moved in the Z.

Never really used it other than on my Prusa machines.

How To Avoid Extruder Travel over Internal Area Of Print

I have a large print with a lot of details and small areas that are internal to the part. The extruder travels over this area and can cause damage to the more delicate sections. Is there a way to keep the extruder from crossing over this area or have it avoid the internal parts when making travel mo...
