Problem with Stretchlet STL ??

I wanted to print a few stretchlets last night for the kids of a friend.. using the latest version cura and both ultimakers at home are running great. set them up, gcoded with default settings and let them print.. came back 30 minutes later to find both printers had just printed the inside wall perimeter of the stretchlet and nothing more..

what am i doing wrong.. should the infill be set to 0 or 100 for this thin wall object ?

i know this is blond question ! ;-) but I was playing with settings for an hour last night and got nothing to work with this...


Ian :-)

    Just being curious: do you see the missing parts in the Gcode view of Cura? I had once a print where some thin walls (0.8mm if I remember correctly) were missing as well. They did not appear in the Gcode view as well.

    The thin-wall stretchlet is too thin for Cura. You should use the solid version, and set the top/bottom to 0 as well as the infill. This gives you a nice outside single line wall.
