Posted · Is it able to make the Shell of an Object smaller in Cura?

Like in the question above, i wondered if i could make the shell of an object smaller than it is. I mean not to print the outer line of the object with 0.2mm instead of 0.4mm, i mean that you could type in a value that will be subtractet from the whole shell. I did't find anything about that in cura.

Does anybody know more than me? :)

    You can use horizontal expansion and put in -.2 or something and it make the shell smaller but only in the x / y directions.

    You could scale the object if you want all directions.

    Or you could set the line width for outer walls at 0.2

    But I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to achieve.
