Prints to thin

Recommended Posts

Posted · Prints to thin

Noob question here.  I just started using Cura with my New Matter ModT 3d Printer.  I used the profile I found on Thingiverse, but when I print the prints are about 1/2 the thickness (you can see through them) that printstudio creates.  The .stl file is exactly the same, the only difference is the slicer.  Can anyone tell me what setting I need to tweak to get my prints thicker?

 

Thanks in advance!

Jeff

Hello @jefflundstrom, I think the problem is that Cura defaults to 2.85mm dia filament but you are using 1.75. You need to tell Cura that the filament diameter is 1.75mm. This  can be done in the material profile.

Thanks for the help!  The actual problem was that the person who created the script did not define an extruder.  I added one to the confit file and it works like a champ!
