New to printing. Excuse ignorance.

The facility that I am a member has 2 Lulz mini’s. Same version of Cura, 1 laptop, Same profile used on both machines [pla] “grid” pattern selected, but one machine prints zig-zag, the other a “concentric spiral” pattern. The dude who normally deals with this stuff is away, so us dummys got to work thru this stuff. Its only really an issue for models with a large flat upper surface.

The pattern used is defined in the slicer when slicing the part. It is not a machine setting and I don’t think that information is contained in the profiles. In Cura, look for Top/Bottom Pattern under the Shell section.
