I’ve been experimenting with bridging on the printer I just finished and I am having some issues and not getting great results.
On my old machine, which was the converted CNC machine I talk about all the time, I printed a giant whistle model in PLA. When the top closed it ran many linear lines, runners, across the top and it worked great. I then printed the small one, same results. This used an older verision of Slic3r (sorry, don’t recall exact revision)
On my new machine printing ABS I’ve been trying to print a bridging test piece ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:17424 ) And when I print it (sliced by Slic3r 0.9.8 or Kisslicer latest version) the bridging method is to draw two ‘runners’ across the tips of the vertical posts, and then draw a zig-zag between the runners. The runners come out awesome, but the zig-zag, not so much, even with fan cooling.
Is there a way to make Slic3r run the first layer of a bridge as all runners between the points, rather than doing the runners+zigzag fill?
Any help is appreciated!
