Trying to print with a solid bottom surface

Recommended Posts

Posted · Trying to print with a solid bottom surface

I am a new user and are asking for help..i have an ender 3 printer using fusion 360 for my design and cura for the slicing.

 

I have designed a 22mm diameter disc that is 1.5mm thick and there is an M6 thread attached in the middle.

 

I have the design sat flat on the bed with the thread portion pointing upwards..i am trying to print the bottom surface completely solid as this surface will be on view but the print seems to be just infilling the disc...i have altered the values in cura for bottom thickness etc and cannot get it to do what i need.

 

There is a couple of links below with pictures showing you what i am getting.

 

Any advice would be great thanks
