100% infill does not fill on second extruder

Hi,

 

I have the problem, that in one model, printed with the second extruder, the void in the cylinder can not be filled. As you can see in the attached screenshot, infill is set to 100% but the cylinder is not filled.

Hello,

 

I found a problem in my settings – sorry. With 100% infill it does fill.

But with 99% or below there is no infill at all.

 

I’m using 4.4.1 on Linux.

Well, your screenshot shows the settings for the first extruder, not the second.

Can it be that simple?

Yes, that was the 100% problem.

But the 1 % – 99 % problem remains. Cura does not generate infill between the inner and outer wall of the cylinder.

100% infill is a special case. Cura will not generate infill at all in this case, but generates "bottom layers" all the way to the top of the model. That's why it looks different at 100%

 

Perhaps the area is too small for the normal infill? I would expect a "gap fill" there instead (if it is activated - i think it is a "shell" setting)?

 

In additiion: does Cura has settings like "minimal infill line length" or "minimal infill area"?

I'm not sure - i would make all infill settings visible and take a look at the tooltips.

      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
