Adjust Filter Out Tiny Gaps?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Adjust Filter Out Tiny Gaps?



The 'Filter Out Tiny Gaps' feature is very useful and enabled by default I believe.

Is possible to adjust what Cura considers a tiny gap?


In the part below I would like to avoid printing these tiny tri-angle sections because they tend to turn in to a little blob and just wastes time z-hopping around.

    That was great advice thank you! 4.8mm didn't do it, 4.9mm didn't do it, but 4.85mm did the trick nicely!


    Combined with disabling 'Fill gaps between walls' and adjusting concentric infill percentage I was able to get a really clean print with minimal z-hopping or jerking around on tiny infill.


    Adjusting line width is not ideal though in all cases, the wall in my item varies thickness so I was lucky to strike a setting that worked across the whole print I think.  It would still be nice to have control over what a 'tiny gap' is, just like you can on the 'minimal infill area' setting.

        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.
