Gap between skin and infill (at 100%)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have an issue I never had so far on Ultimaker 2 that leaves a gap bewteen what I believe is the outer skin and the infill (set at 100%). See pictures. I did not have this issue previously and it appeared out of the blue. I believe the only change is the use of Cura 2.6 instead of 15.04.6. I have to say Cura 2.6 is not user friendlyt and complicated versus version 15.04. Could it be the cause ?

Or is it an issue with my Ultimaker 2 ? (I do not see any mechanical issue, it is well tuned)

I have never seen anything like that on my prints even on my first prints knowing nothing. And while I have not used Cura below 2.3, I do not find it difficult as most of it is preset.

It is interesting that is only showed when you upgraded software. Perhaps if you upped the files for the team to look at. Project file/logs, etc....

    • "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.
