CuraEngine output minimum wall thickness


Recommended Posts

Posted · CuraEngine output minimum wall thickness

I don't understand the question.  Are you asking how thick a wall has to be in order for Cura to slice it?  In general if the wall is thinner than 2X the nozzle width then it won't slice it.  But there are work arounds.


Or are you asking for Cura to look at every wall in your model and tell you which walls are too thin?  Can't your cad software do that?

    I have CuraEngine that runs on my command line. It outputs the print time and volume for a given STL. Is it also possible to output if there any defects in the file, such as whether thin walls are present?

    I don't think so, the purpose of CuraEngine is to slice and not to check your STL for some errors. I would be better to use Cura, there are some possibilities (x-ray or layer view) to check your sliced object.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
