  1. THX everybody, so there is no setting to tell Cura to: a) print horizontal geometry and b) not "invent" or "add" additional geometry? All the detail is essentially there.... The shell has no "depth" since it should be printable with a single layer. That seems only possible without a given depth, since no fixed nozzle-size is required. I might try the blender way though.... For now i help myself with some "cut meshes" that enable the top/bottom layers at some key-points. Not perfect, since those cut-meshes generate a top/bottom-layer themselfes, but that layer is not as extensive as a top/bottom layer over the whole wing. (other cut-meshes enable a second wall at the start and end of each wing-part) That kinda works for the wings. I haven't looked at the fuselage yet.

  2. Hi, i have a big problem printing some STLs. The STLs are open on bottom and top. However, when i enable the top/bottom layers in cura, cura closes the bottoms and tops. If i disable bottom/top layers by setting them to 0, cura also does not print some horizontal parts inside the model that should be there. This is my test-part: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2115282/#files Cura 3.1 is used. I made some screenshots: 1: In solid view you can see the horizontal part in the blue circle. 2: with top-layers enabled, the model is closed on top (but should be open) 3: inside the model now looks good 4: without top layers the part is missing So it seems that either i can a) have the model open but parts missing b) have the model closed but inside its OK :-( I already tried the "cut mesh" tricks: the mesh-part where i have to enable the top-layers always inserts an artificially inserted closed top/bottom layer at its boundaries -> no help there..... Any help is greatly appreciated! Greetings, Markus
  3. As a "not-yet-printing-this-model" reader i would just like to thank you for posting this very nice "how-to-optimize" guide. Very helpful!
