Thin wall sliced as inner wall


Recommended Posts

Posted · Thin wall sliced as inner wall



I would like to ask for your help. I was going to print calibration thin wall "cube", but I already see that Cura sliced it as yellow inner walls, resulting in some walls not being straight lines, but bunch of short angled pieces instead. I attach a screenshot. If you can help me with some advise how can I set it to straight outer wall lines, I would be really grateful. Thank you!

    Thank you for reply. I enclose today's file, because I didn't save the previous one. Hovewer, there is the same issue. This is Cura 3.6 now, but previously it was 3.5.1 (just updated today).


    EDIT: Also, "print thin walls" is enabled, of course. Without it, it didn't want to slice it at all.

    Hello @Wizzeros. I'm afraid that with the current Cura, that is what you get when you ask it to print thin walls. Arguably, it does not do a good job. By coincidence, I have recently been working on a related part of Cura that fills gaps between walls and I think the technique I have used there could also be used when printing thin walls. Perhaps in the future, Cura will handle this better.
