Bottom and Top Layer Infill Issues

Posted · Bottom and Top Layer Infill Issues

I am hoping someone can help me with some settings on the bottom and top layers.  I have a Creality Ender 3 printer.  I have set the infill to 100% and when it prints the first layer it seems to have gaps in it like it's not filling at 100%.  Same problem with the top.  The outside of the side walls are nice and smooth so I'm guessing the layer height is ok but can't seem to get similar results on the top and bottom.  Any ideas?

    For me, it looks like that the distance between bed and nozzle it to high and therefore the material will not be squished enough into the bed. Have you leveled your bed correctly?

     

    What are your other settings? Line Width, Nozzle size, Layer Height, First layer Height? Would be much easier if you would post your Cura project here.

     

    Do you see the problem already in the layer view in Cura?

    I attached the file with the pics.  Bed is level.

    After looking, I would like the bottom and top layers to look like the walls.  When it prints the perimeter the lines look good.  When moves to the middle is when I get the spacing.

    I figured out the issue in case anyone else has the same problem.  Default settings have the top/bottom line width set to 0.4.  Switching to 0.2 seems to produce a very nice surface finish.

        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.
