cura filling in holes

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.

      • 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
