Infill problems

Recommended Posts

Hello we just purchased a ultimaker 3 and are having issues with all infill patterns. It looks like they are being printed too fast or something else is wrong. They are not complete lines the are separated. The outer surface of the print is excellent. Just the infill is the issue. We have everything set to default in cura 2.5 with a .150 layer height.

Cura by default prints the infill a bit too fast. I believe the idea is they assume you only care about infill for holding up the top surfaces and don't care about strength. If you care about strength just slow down the infill speeds.

Click on the gear and enable all the speeds. Set them all to the same speed (the slower speed). Well, leave the bottom or initial layer speed the same but fix all the infill and inner shell speeds the same as the outer shell speed.
