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...

SOS.

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.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        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.
