Trying to print with a solid bottom surface

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

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
