Holes in top layer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Holes in top layer

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

You might want thicker walls, yes.  I would first try 100mm walls (all wall) and play with nozzle width but alternatively or in addition:

 

You want to set 

Extra Skin Wall Count to 0 

and

filter out tiny gaps should be checked
