Top layer/skin not smooth

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I cant seems to get the last top layer nice and smooth, there are gaps between the inner wall and the top 'infill'

I can adjust infill overlap and see the result on layerview and see with extreme 0.4mm overlap ,that the infill lines go through the wall, but the top skin or top layer still have gaps.

Anyone know maybe other things I can adjust ? It appears that the final last layer on a model have its own settings...?

 

 

Infill overlap 0.2mm :

Infill overlap 0.4mm :

Whatever infill overlap, the top layer seems unaffected and have gaps

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
