Gaps in gear teeth

Recommended Posts

I am using Cura 3.2.1 on my own printer (not an Ultimaker) to print some gears. There are gaps in the teeth and I can't find a way of overcoming this. This is definitely a slicing issue not a printer one, as you can see the gaps in the layer view. Can anyone suggest settings that might fix this?

 

Some possibly relevant settings: 0.1mm layers, 0.4mm nozzle, 0.8mm wall thickness, and others visible in the screenshot. The only change which seems to fix it is 0.4mm walls, but this is undesirable as I want two walls in other parts of the model.

 

Thanks for any help.

      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.
