Hi there

i have a problem with printing a part in cura wich is a anti glare piece for a meter it is supposed to be straight but the bottom is thicker for the first 10 mm from z=0 and then the supposed wall thickness

is seems to be the remains of an infill but it is set on 0%

    Can you show a photo or screen shot of what you are talking about please? Is the problem visible in layer view or is it fine in layer view but you can see the problem only after you print it?

    i have tryed to upload a print screen but it is not working in cura and i cannot add the file in this forum either

    So imagine a box without a bottom and a top 50*65 mm one side z+50 mm opposite side z+10 mm what is happening is the first 10 mm in Z is filled with a raster but it is supposed to be a single wall when i remove the infill the wall on the first 10 mm in Z is made thicker also when you look in the layer display the first 10 mm is green on the inside the rest upwards is dark red

    I think I visualized what you are talking about - a box where the top is cut at a very steep angle. The "rasterize" I'm guessing is infill? I think you are trying to say it's putting infill where it shouldn't?????

    It really sound like a non manifold model. Did you create this in sketchup? If so sketchup has many issues but they can be overcome and I can point you to instructions on repairing sketchup created models or you can send your model through this:

    netfabb free repair service is here:

    Try looking at your model in cura in xray view. It should have no red. If there is anything that is red then you need to fix your model.

    Alternatively it sounds like some of your walls might be a bit too thin. If so try setting the line width settings (all of them) to something tiny jsut to see what happens. Try 0.1mm. But don't print it like that - just do this to see if your walls are too thin.

    Really some screen shots would be valuable.
