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.

    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.
