Print on outer or middle of line?

Postby Olly Oxenfree » Sun Oct 18, 2020 8:37 pm

Just made a plug to go into the end of a piece of pipe. I made the diameter 0.2mm smaller so that with cooling-shrinkage should have been fine but it was too tight.

Is there a setting for the slicing to be done on the inner or center of the CAD-line?

I seem to recall that Cura had an option for "inner, center or outer" and wondering if IM has it under a different name. I have searched and not found anything to help. Or, do I just need to guess again and reduce the diameter by 0.4mm or something like that?
