cura filling in holes


Recommended Posts

Posted · cura filling in holes

Have worked out a lot of issues but stumped on this one.

Cant seam to get cura to properly print 2mm hollow vertical tubes correctly, if I use a single .4mm line it is ok, but walls to thin, looking for .8 - 1.0mm thickness.

If I increase line width or line count, holes get filled?


This is a piece of the puzzle, 

union overlapping is off, .4 nozzle, have tried different line width's, line counts, speeds, layer heights.... Have to be missing a simple setting?

any thoughts  will greatly be appreciated

    I glanced at the thingiverse link but there are dozens of stl files there and I'm not sure which one is fuselage3 and sorry but I'm just 1% too lazy to download it and open it into cura.


    Could you please post 2 photos - one of the part in prepare mode and one in preview mode so we can see what you mean?  It's great that you posted the STL for people who want to experiment but please show the issue that you are talking about visually.
