Vases with Cura

Recommended Posts

Is there any way (official or not ;-) to turn off those additional

fill-ins that Cura creates on the inside of not-filled prints?


This ruins everything...

Maybe "vases" as subject was unfavourable.

It's really all about how to turn this off.

Additionally "not official" should read as undocumented

slicer command line switch, Cura handling trick or

slicer SW change :-)



I would like to have 3 outlines, so this does not work.


Wall only?

I am sorry. I don't know what this means.


infill 0%?

This is what is shown in the image and actually my problem.


Which Cura version?


Due to the forum changes, it seems impossible to find old

posts. I assume it was about 2 years ago, I asked the same

question before. Somewhere around Cura version 13.06.3.

The only way, that I know of, to get rid of this is to set Top/Bottom thickness to 0. But of course this is usually not a solution as you more often than not at least want a bottom on your print.

Spiralize would work, but not in your case since you want 3 outlines. If you can get by with a wall thickness of something like 0.6 or so that could be done as well by overextruding a bit.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
