Watertight recipient (I see Holes in slice)


Recommended Posts

Posted · Watertight recipient (I see Holes in slice)

I need to make a watertight recipient, and I have tried several times and it leaks.
Zooming in the slices I see that there is some holes, as can be seen in the picture.


Does anyone know how can I get rid of that and build solid walls?


Any help will be much apretiated!

Thanks in advance.

    Disable coasting.


    You could also try using the spiralize mode that prints a single outer wall as a continuous spiral. Using that I have printed vases using PETG that are completely watertight.
