same model, same settings. Wall Line Count set to 1.

Where does this green line come from in Cura 3.x?:) Thanks!

    There is a new setting in Cura 3 called "Extra Skin Wall Count" that determines how many extra walls skin layers will have. For some reason, they decided to make the default 1 rather than 0. So in all my profiles I have to go around changing it to 0 so as to get the same results as I had before.

    Thanks @smartavionics ! Worked perfectly. I agree that it should have been set to 0 by default.

    It would be so cool to specify different wall counts for bottom/top/rest of the print. Couldn't find such feature yet, I hope it gets implemented one day...
