random vs non random

Mon Apr 08, 2013 3:19 pm

I can't seem to get Creator to do non random layer outline starts it always starts at the end of infill moves. I would like starts to line up, any
suggestions or am I missing something ?

Hey chuck,

Creator has 2 modes for your outline start point. If you choose random start points, it's exactly that. It will start at random places on the outer-most outline for each layer and each loop. It's typically what we recommend since it helps minimize the appearance of seams. If you turn random off, then the program falls back on it's optimization routines. It will place the outline start point in the best position to minimize travel time and also prevent unnecessary oozing. If you happen to be printing a single outline print like a bracelet or vase, that typically means that all of the outline seams line up.
