Cura 3.5 - First Layer Issues


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.5 - First Layer Issues

I'm experiencing a weird issue in Cura 3.5 where after slicing, the print is missing filament in places it should have. See the image - all 3 are the same object, however the middle one appears to be missing parts of its bottom layer and the fill pattern in the bottom layer on the left one appears to be different from the chosen zig-zag fill. It's most noticeable ont he first layer, but does also seem to be happening on subsequent layers

    OK, but unless I can see those settings and try slicing it myself, I can't really offer any assistance.


    EDIT - sorry, I didn't realise that was a link, I have the settings - thanks.

    Hi @Tarasque_1024, I have verified the bug. As a workaround, use the "lines" style for top/bottom rather than "zig-zag". If you do that, the problem seems to go away. I will file a bug report about this. Cheers.
