Top and Bottom solid infill

Recommended Posts

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+.

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
