Inefficient extruder motion in IdeaMaker

Postby jon_bondy » Mon Mar 12, 2018 3:09 pm

When I print this planetary gear, there are moments when the extruder moves briskly from left to right to left. It is as if it is going to locations that are sorted in Y but not by X. The optimal path would be a circular one. I'm not sure how important this is. Just wanted you to know.

Seems it is due to Solid Infill structures to fill as a basement for the next layer.
We will take a look how to optimize the moving path.
