bottom layers Layer adjustments gradient infill?


Recommended Posts

Posted · bottom layers Layer adjustments gradient infill?

I have looked but have not found an answer for my situation. 


I am looking to make solid infill parts and have my first layer 98% perfect with almost no mounding and everything 0.2mm which is my also first layer setting in cura 4.3. now my second layer if i use multiple bottom layers will mound the infill to a thickness of 0.4mm layer measured from the bottom overall thickness is now 0.6mm. My layer thickness is 0.2mm so i have a 150% overfilling at the peaks. I was able to get around this by doing a single bottom layer and infill at 75% is close but it is still slightly mounding for the second layer through the 4th layer then at layer 5 it starts printing with open gap like 75% infill should and does for the rest of the infill. 


The esteps, nozzle diameter, filament diameter are all accounted for and setup properly. Is there a setting to adjust the bottom layer infill to compensate for over filling during the following bottom layer? Or alternative ideas for testing?

        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.
