Holes in top layer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am printing a name tag with thin walls. How do I get the infill/skin to fill up the entire surface and avoid gaps as much as possible? I thought of horizontal expansion but that's pretty brutal when the number is increased too much. (Cura 3.2.1)

Thanks!

With a lot of walls is hard to get a 100% top fill, you can try to reduce the line width and lower the numbers of the outer wall to increase the top infill area, with the right amount of overlap it should works nice
