Difference between layers

Recommended Posts

Hello all, can someone please explain me the difference between the two layers on the pictures?



The layer before looks messed up, the lines of the path and everything.

Cura settings:

0.2 LH

0.7 Shell thick.

0.8 B/T thick

20% fill

50 speed

does this affect on the print or is it just cura's display bug?

Thank you.

I saw somewhere to look at Xray view in Cura also very interesting to see Red colored areas for problems. I do not think messed green can affect print job. Do you using 0.35 mm nozzle because of shell thickness = (I use actually) Nozzle size (0.4) x 2 = 0.8

Thanks for the fast answer.

With the Xray view I see some red spots, but they arent on thoose layers with the mentioned problem.

I use a standard 0.4 nozzle, but somehow I saw often a better result in cura with the 0.7 shell thickness than 0.8.

Btw using older cura version 14.12.1
