Cannot print thin walls

Posted · Cannot print thin walls

I am currently stuck on another project. I have designed my piece in Inkscape and exported as an svg into Fusion. When I am done the wall thickness is about .2 in the model. When I slice it, it does not want to print it because it is too thin. I cannot create an offset in Fusion because of the complexity of the line. Each time I attempt it the program crashes or loads forever. Is there some way I can tell Cura to just print the wall at .4 instead of redesigning my entire piece?

    You can set "horizontal expansion" to 0.3mm to get all the walls up to 0.8.  But it will make everything 0.3mm thicker.  Anyway this is the simplest solution I can think of.  I recommend at least 0.8mm walls.  If you want to go thinner - say 0.6mm walls then you will need to enable "print thin walls".
