"shell" is the total thickness of the outer walls (not including the infill pattern). outer wall is the thickness of the outer most pass. Usually it should be exactly the same or a little less than the nozzle width. There are inner shells as well.

I don't know what skin is. There is a something about "top skin". I don't know what that is exactly. I have that always set to 0.

    Thank You gr5, for Your answer.

    I am familiar with outer and inner walls, but think is about skin, Cura 2.7 is the first time I see this parametr (normally i use repetier), but becouse of lack of the parameters (in Slicer nad Cura engine), I decided to move into Cura for slicing models.

    My idea for skin is that Cura call outer wall - skin? But I am now sure about that.
