Line Width vs Line Spacing


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Line Width vs Line Spacing

It is my understanding that, in Cura,  the center-to-center line spacing is equal to the Line Width setting.  If so, for a calibrated extruder where printing two walls of 0.5mm gives a measured thickness of 1mm, is there any overlap between the two walls?  I know there must be but I can't wrap my brain around how this works.  In PrusaSlicer, the line width doesn't equal the line spacing, giving the needed overlap.
