Cura 2.7 problem with scaling

Recommended Posts

Hi there I have a problem with cura 2.7, when I try to scale an object it looses outside walls (see attachment) in this case when I scale it to 37% it has all walls but at 36% it looses outern walls. This isn't happening to all objects but is very annoying. I checked the same model in ideamaker and slic3r and it scale without any problem even to 20% but I prefer to using Cura.

Thanks for any sugestions :)

There is a minimum part thickness that can print. Typically if the nozzle is .4mm the minimum wall width is around the same I believe with cura 2.7.

Try changing ALL the line widths to .3mm for a .4mm nozzle (that's about the minimum you can go down to and still get reasonable quality). Or consider using a .25mm nozzle.

    • "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.
