Why is cura 15.04 causing this bad edge print?

Recommended Posts

I have printed a few files with cura 15.04 lately and i have been experiencing bad print quality for a while.

Settings:

Layer hight: 0.2 mm

Shell thickness: 3 mm

Enable retraction (true)

bottom/ top thickness: 3 mm

Fill density 50%

print speed 50 mm/s

support type none

platform adhesion type: none

The straight lines of the wall make the parts pretty weak. Epoxy on top/bottom is needed to make it really strong.

Old prints with cura 14.01 did a sideways top line over top/bottom to make it strong:

This part does not have the same settings but still , much better top/bottom print.

Is this a bug in the new cura or am i doing something wrong?

I have a Ultimaker 2 , printing with 3mm PLA.

Thanks

    • "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.
