Top and Bottom solid infill

Recommended Posts

Posted · Top and Bottom solid infill

Call me stupid ! :angry:

In the previous version of Cura (15.X...) there was an expert setting to have top and bottom solid infill...I am unable to find the same setting in Cura 2.3 ?!

What did I miss ?

Thanks,

Dan

Top Layers and Bottom Layers (or Top Thickness / Bottom Thickness) is your friend.

Setting 0 here is the same as unchecking the Solid infill ... in 14.x

Any number > 0 gives you this number (height) of solid layers (Bottom/Top thickness in 14.x)

Thank you Bernd...Either I didn't understand or the problem I have is not the one I believe !

My part has a wall and as you can see on the picture the wall is not filled...Not a printer issue as the slicer is showing it hollow ?!

No, thats another problem:

you have a 0.6mm nozzle (resulting from this a line-width 0.6mm)

and you wanna print a wall-thickness of 1.59mm

that wouldn't work well - I assume - because cura didn't know how to calculate this correct.

Wall-thickness should be a multiple (or at least near by) of the line-width (nozzle-size).

Yeeess ! You nailed it !

I thought about this one but as the value was calculated and proposed by Cura I didn't change...I put a wall thickness of 1,2 and it now looks ok...I have to try a print !

Thanks a ton.

My 2.3.1 does not have nozzle, how come yours does???

Is it because I am using a customised printer?

 

Not sure to understand your question ?5a332399de31b_2016-11-1211_03_19-ASUSROGGamingCenter.thumb.jpg.5161c8e8bfa7c0c4e87fecad5484e48a.jpg

Here is the control panel I am using...with the option on the left I have the nozzle detail. Fact is that I have selected the UM2+.

The nozzle selectbox only appears if in your printer definition "has_variants" is set to true and there are definitions in /variants

As far as I know this is per default only in the Ultimaker definitions.

If you use a custom printer definition you have to add this entry manualy (if you realy need it) ...

Thanks for that @berndjm . I suspected it might be something to do with Ultimaker vs custom printer. I do not need it as I can just change the defn. in the printer setting but I was curious as to why I was not seeing it :)
