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

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
