There is no "Fill gaps between walls" option in Shell options as stated in the tutorials

Recommended Posts

Hmm, I can't find it either and honestly I think I missed it when/if it was available. A lot changed in a very short time in the earliest days of Cura 2.x. Perhaps @nallath is able to shed some light on it, or poke someone that can?

In the mean time you can play around with the different "Line width" and "Wall thickness" settings to close up those empty spaces between walls.

The implementation of that feature was tightly coupled with the feature Remove Overlapping Wall Parts. However, the latter feature became unnecessary when I introduced the Compensate Wall Overlap feature, so I removed it.

Later I realized that by doing so I also removed the Fill Gaps feature, but then it was too late.

The fill gaps feature will be reintroduced in Cura 2.3

I'm sorry!!

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
