Slicing Problem

Posted · Slicing Problem

Since three weeks I am quite successfully printing with my ultimaker - and I am loving it! :D

For slicing I use Cura. I tried RepG, too, but Cura simply is better. Great software! 8-)

But now I encountered my first problem with Cura that I cannot solve on my own. I have designed a thin wall grid (0.4mm) and wanted to slice it with cura.

This is what I want:

And this is what I get:

grid2.jpg

... :?: ...

You can find the STL-file and the gcode in this ZIP-archive.

Maybe someone out there has an idea, what I am doing wrong.

    Simply put, it's the thin wall problem. Thin objects are currently very hard to slice with the implementation found in Cura. You could try making the walls 0.5mm in width to see if that helps.

    You are not doing anything wrong, cura does.

    change your nozzle size in Cura to 0.35mm, and see if that helps
