Cura losing detail

Hi there. Cura is losing detail for some reason on one of my files. I can get it to print correctly if I enable the "only follow mesh surface" option but this disables the infill which I require. Ive included pictures to show what I mean.The top picture is the standard setting and the bottom is the black magic option.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks. Dan.

    Hey Dan,

    welcome to the forum.

    You need to provide your slicing settings in Cura or else it is impossible to see what's up. Either post screenshots or slice and save a .gcode file and then post the profile settings inside the .gcode at the bottom.

    Ive just tried reducing the shell thickness and seems to give a better approximation(in the layer preview) of the intended outcome. the actual measurement of the hexagon solid width is 0.6mm which is more than my 0.4 nozzle so it shouldn't have any trouble...

    any ideas?

    thanks

    For walls, Cura always wants to do 2 shells, so minimum wall width with a 0,4 nozzle should be 0,8 mm. Even then, Cura somtimes has problems, so i usually make walls like 8,1 mm. or you reduce nozzle size below 0,3mm

    thanks for the help I will try increasing the wall size.

    @dgrogandesign: You can create a .gcode file (just slice something and save it somewhere). Then you can paste the ;CURA_PROFILE_STRING at the end of the file replacing the already existing one. Then in Cura, from the menu you can say "Load profile from GCode".

    That's very useful if you want to recall your slicing settings from past prints.

    I could have asked you to just save the slicing profile and paste the resulting .ini file here - but I forgot it - sorry.

    However, there is one issue with your slicing settings. In the advanced area you have set the "Initial layer thickness (mm)" to 0. I think that's problematic.
