Fill in problem still

Doesn't anyone have this problem really? Where some perimeters don't touch the infill? I can't attach a pic. But some parts just don't get close enough to the perimeter so yeah. I think there is a pic in another post called 100% infill problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.

First thing to check is your belt tension, you might have backlash effects because of slack in your belts.

The belts are fin, motors cooler, extruder works right and i'm getting 100% fill in. Just some areas of the infill never touch the perimeters. regardless if its beside a circle or a flat spot. I'm thinking its a software issue. Any other ideas? Thanks for the reply

if the infill is globally not touching the perimeters/shells/walls, you should check the infill overlap parameter under the advanced settings menu in cura. I think the default is 15%, my UM is pretty tight, so I use 12%... if your UM isn't "tight", try 20-25% and see if it makes a difference.

I will try Cura asap then. I only used ReplicatorG and the Slic3r within-it to print and create g code. I thought that would be enough. PS: the calibration cubes come out perfect hence why i am a bit puzzled and think its Slic3r that messes up on anything more complex then a cube. Thanks for the idea by the way.

slic3r has known issues with infill, and not connecting extrusions.
