Detail Missing After Gcode Generation


Recommended Posts

Got an odd one here. Prepared a part to test detail. The detail is there before the slicing and then it disappears after the slicing process. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Features that are smaller than your declared nozzle width are going to get filtered out during the slicing. You could try reducing your nozzle width setting a little - to perhaps 0.25mm or 0.3mm and see if that recovers the detail.

    Note that you don't necessarily have to have a physically smaller nozzle - within limits you can declare the nozzle to be a little smaller than it actually is, although you'd get better results if the physical and declared nozzle sizes match.

    This is called the "thin wall" problem. If the wall width is .7mm and the nozzle width is .4mm and it is trying to do both sides - that is .8mm which is wider than the wall and so it can't print it. Can you make your "detail" a little thicker?

    I did suspect it was related to nozzle size. The width of the text is 0.38mm, my nozzle is 0.35mm. The odd thing is that it has recognised most of the text. The leg of the 'P' has missed but the top of the leg is recognised..

    BTW if I run this through Kisslicer it is recognised.
