Can i "artificially" generate gaps between first layer lines? PIC!

My first layer tends to overlap. If increase "line width" to 200%, cura will try to widen the print to that. If i increase layer height, once again cura tries to compensate by extruding more.

What i want is to do the "200% line widths" but with and actual "100% width" leaving gaps between every line. These i would then over-extrude and fill via that way, gaining good adhesion.

    Reduce their initial layer flow.

     

    Alternatively, adjust your bed height physically.

     

    Lowering flow or printing higher wont work. That just reduces the contact surface.

    I want to have the wall-lines wider/further apart from each other, like the infill in the pic is. I want to then add over-extruding that will squish the filament down to addhere better.
    The infill comes in perfect, but the walls are too close and overlap.

    I hope you understand what im trying to do here.

    So what you do is set the line width to 200%, but set the flow to 50%, so that in the end the lines are extruded 100%, but spaces 200%.

        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.
