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+.

    My gui does not show the nozzle box on the 2nd line, just the material box. Maybe @nallath knows?

    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 :)
