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%.
