Infill is not sliced and printed every layer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Infill is not sliced and printed every layer

Just noticed after all my prints turns out to have very bad infill that cura 4.4 slices and prints all the infill with one "pause" layer(see attached picture). Is there a reason for this and how can i edit this so it prints support every layer? this really messes up all my prints where i need infill. Infill density is set to 1% and ive tried several other settings including pattern, line multiplier and thickness.

 

any tips or solution is greatly appreciated

    You're using zigzag infill pattern that prints alternate layers in different directions. Because the infill density is so low (you're using 1%) there's going to be a lot of air under each infill line. 1% gyroid infill does a better job (I think) but will still have problems at the top of the print where those rectangular skin areas are as they and the walls around them will be printed on air. You are going to need more infill to print those areas.
