issue, hole wall printed on just infill no bottom, with pictures

Recommended Posts

Hello every one, and of cause my first post is a problem!

So I've been using cura for a while now it's very intuitive i like it, I am also designing my own parts now with freecad and starting with fusion 360.

 The problem however is not only with things I have designed but with everything i slice.  If the object has a hole and then a larger hole outside of it in close proximity as with a surface with a countersunk screw it will slice it so that the outer top hole walls are printed on just infill leaving a small gap.  I presume it should use the last layers of the smaller hole underneath and make a bottom surface for the top hole. 

 This doesn't notice on thick walls but they must be thin for this and many  projects i do,  I tried changing top and bottom layer counts but it seems that cured doesn't recognise it as a different sized hole?

Any help is greatly appreciated thank you, Tom.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
