How Do I Choose The Number Of Shells?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How Do I Choose The Number Of Shells?

I'm new to 3D printing. I'm printing a robotic hand and they gave me the files. Here is the page http://inmoov.fr/hand-and-forarm/. The printing instructions say to me that I need to print some of the objects to 3 Shells or 2 Shell depending. How do I choose this number of shells in Cura Version 3.3.1.

Thanks!

Set line width to your nozzle width or just make a note of what the value is (e.g. maybe it's 0.35mm) then search for "wall" just above the settings and set "wall thickness" to exactly 2X or 3X that value and you will see that "wall line count" just automatically gets calculated properly.  So if you want .35mm line width and 3 walls set wall width to 1.05mm.
