Under extrusion on some shells wall lines

Recommended Posts


It seems like Cura 2.5 (I have not checked other versions) is slicing in under-extrusion on some walls, see the transition circled in red in the image:

layer view

By the way, Cura 2.5's layer view is awesome for showing this :)I saw gaps between the walls on my actual print, which is what made me investigate. What I see in my physically printed object matches the layer view pretty well, i.e. the wall lines that appear solidy connected in the layer view also seem solid in the print, and th ones that look underextruded in the layer view have gaps.

I wanted to attach my cura project, but it seems that the forum does not allow this, but I cannot really imagine what I could have done to cause this ;)The model is from this thing: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1784375

    • "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.
