In cura 2.6 I have set my profile to use 0% infill, the infill pattern choice disappears as expected. Slice and print. It prints with infill?

Am i doing this wrong? Is there another area to print shell only ?

    Are you using a single-extrusion printer based on Custom FDM Printer?

    There's a bug in Cura 2.6. You can help test the fix:

    * Download this file: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/fieldOfView/Cura/adc547fa36b3edc288369543d1c97c648f6f22c5/plugins/CuraEngineBackend/StartSliceJob.py

    * Replace the file on your computer that is located in [cura install location]/plugins/CuraEngineBackend (eg: C:\Program Files\Cura 2.6\plugins\CuraEngineBackend\StartSliceJob.py on windows)

    * Restart Cura and test if it works now.

    Yes I'm using single extruder based upon Custom FDM

    Downloaded file, and put in Library/Application Support/cura/2.6/plugins/CuraEngineBackend/

    Im on a mac so not sure if location or file is applicable for Mac osx.

    Had no effect, still shows hollow on screen in Cura platter view, but prints with infill in gcode.

    That is the wrong location. Please remove the file you put there.

    Instead you have to right click on the Cura application, and select "Show package contents". Inside that folder, I think it is Contents/plugins/CuraEngineBackend (but I don't have a Mac available right now to check). The file you downloaded should replace a file that is already there.

    Also, do not forget to turn on "Hollow out objects" in experience as it helps with any internal overhangs and will actually override (at least in my experience) any infill settings.

    Be aware though that I am on a PC Cura as well as UM3+

    I can confirm the replacement file when placed in the corrected location above now correctly slices with no infill when 0 infill is selected.

    I still get the wrong temperature separate thread I started, but the infill now is correct

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
