unwanted bottom layers on intermediate layers

Recommended Posts

Posted · unwanted bottom layers on intermediate layers

Hello 

I’m trying to print a plane wing from here https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3205608

 

i’d like 3 bottom layers and no top layer. the rest of the print should only consist of 1 lined walls. so basically the whole piece is just wall print, except for the bottom 3 layers.

 

the problem is: cura adds bottom layer lines to every layer. the result is this as in the picture named "wrong"

if i set the bottom layer count to 0 then it is correctly sliced like in the screenshot named "no_bottom_layers"

but obviously that’s not what i want…

i've also attached the profile i'm using for the print

 

can anybody help with that problem? 

Thanks in advance!
