How Do I Choose The Number Of Shells?

Recommended Posts

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.
