Infill instead of shell above support

Recommended Posts

Posted · Infill instead of shell above support

Hi,

 

I've noticed the issue that sometimes Cura generates infill above support instead of shell. I tried to reproduce this issue by modelling a very simple part with different dimensions, which shows that the issue seems to dependent on the size of the area above the support. If the area is small Cura does not generate a shell, if the area is bigger it generates a shell.

 

I attached some screenshots, the STLs and the G-Code.

I would appreciate if somebody can give me some hints how to solve this issue.

 

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

What we really need is the project file that has both the model and the settings. Please do File -> Save (not export) and attach the .3mf file to this thread. Thanks.

It was the value of Minimum Infill Area that was causing that skin not to be printed. It seems to me that setting has completely the wrong name and blurb because the effect it has is to remove areas of skin that have an area smaller than that value and it has nothing to do with infill.

Thanks a lot! That solved the problem! You're absolutely right, the name is very misleading.
