Cura 4.3.0 Hole printing wall problem


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura 4.3.0 Hole printing wall problem


I have just purchased a Creality Ender 3x, and I've been having a issue where, while printing holes on the side of the wall, the wall shrinks a layer. Does anyone else has this issue? Is it a problem with Cura's setting? I tried older version and they all have this problem. 


thanks in advance

    I think what this means is you are printing too fast. The geometry changes in that area such that there are more walls, causing a greater average quantity of filament needing to be melted and pushed out. In the other layers you’re probably right at the edge of what your extruder and hot end can deliver. When you get to the more complex area, it just can’t keep up.


    At least, that’s my guess.
