Cura 15.06.02 does not create infill in shaft

Recommended Posts


today I wanted to print a small holder.

I sliced it with new Cura 15.06.02 and watched the layers first.

But new Cura does not create any infill inside the shaft (around layer 44).

In the bottom and top it creates infill again.

Then I sliced it with the old Cura 15.02.01 and this one creates the infill without any problems as you can see here:


Why the new Cura 15.06.02 does not create the infill where the shaft is?



I wanted to provide the STL-file here but in this forum I cannot see any option to add an STL file.

If someone knows how to do it please tell me ;-)

Hi dim3nsioneer,

thanks for reply. Here what it looks like in legacy Cura x-ray view:


'Fix horrible' is set to 'Combine everything (Type A)' but I never set this - I hink this is the default?

But even if I disable it legacy Cura creates infill as expected - new Cura doesn't :-(

Hi gr5,

today I found some time to check further but all give same result.

Here is the screenshot for 24% infill:


(click with right mouse button and choose 'Open in new tab' to get it in full size)

I also tested with 10%, 99%, 100% all with same result. :-(

today I downloaded Cura 15.09.81 beta and did a test on this issue.

It seems that the problem is solved - however I face two issues:


I set 50% infill density. But the infill density from Cura 15.02.1 is more dense compared to 15.09.81 beta (please compare to the  picture in my first post in this thread)

(I played a littlebit. If I set infill to 80% on 15.09.81 then it seems to be same as 50% in 15.02.1). So for some reason 50% on both version do not give same infill.

- Why is this?



If layer view is turned on and I use up/down arrow on keybord to move through the layers then the layer is changed as expected but the 3D view rotates at same time!?!

BTW I am on Windows 7 professional 64Bit

    • "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.
