As described in an article in the German Make magazine, I gave Cura a try, using the wire frame printing. It is available in the experimental menu, it managed to print an angel using the default settings. Was anybody aware of this functionality?

it get much better if you using a transparent filament and only 1-2mm layer (mesh) height.

Make also suggested to reduce the default as most printers do not have the 5mm clearance around the nozzle. The triangle vase looks interesting, I will try different settings to see how it performs.

I have not but it looks cool.

I have been looking for the wireprint function a long time but cura is not so easily usable with my leapfrog creatr… :frowning:

@marc_kerger I used Cura just for slicing, then I saved the gcode to SD card and ran it on my Robo 3D after homing without an issue. I want to try with my Kossel next as I think it will perform better than a cartesian printer
