How to fill in tiny holes

My print is made up of many thin walls. But there are small gap at some corners that aren't filled in. Maybe I could try increasing the flow/multiplier on the printer while it's printing to maybe fill in these gaps. Could you suggest something else? Thx

    You could try changing the line width ( or nozzle diameter )

    A 0.4mm nozzle can print lines larger than 0.4mm and smaller eg 0.3mm

    Don't adjust the flow as it doesn't adjust the spacing between the lines but manipulating the nozzle size in Cura does.

    Thx, I always thought the line width had to be the same size as my nozzle (which is 0.4mm). Cura shows wall width and infill width, I will test them out. Seems like maybe increasing infill width might hopefully do it.
