Cura creates random membranes

Recommended Posts

As I try to print five hexagonal towers, Acura seems to insert randomly a thin horizontal wall on some. They seem to be different on every slice, sometimes there are one sometimes two. This was on Cura 3.2.x but I was also able to reproduce on Cura 3.3.1, both times on a Mac.

 

the resulting print does include that thin wall, on two out of five towers. I thought it had to do with adaptive layers at first but it remained after disabling any beta feature.

Let us know if there is any red in xray view.  if there is or isn't then we will try to think of another theory.  Also could you move to a layer that shows these extra membranes you are talking about?  I don't see what you mean in the photo.  Also please zoom in (plus key on number pad or I think mouse wheel also works).

    • "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.
