Unfinished prints with new profile

Recommended Posts

Posted · Unfinished prints with new profile

Hi all,


I have a couple of tried & validated cura profiles which have served fairly well over time. However, I had some issues with a particular filament, so I downloaded a cura profile the vendor recommended for it. I tried today with a couple of prints and, while the printer did not jam or anything, both prints look "unfinished". As in it looks the top layers are missing or something. Please see the attachments. I find the dragon particularly weird (please ignore the broken wing), as it seems the top of the its coasters/base is missing (it should obviously be solid). I think this is probably related to some misconfigured top layers parameters, but there are so many configurations that even with CURA's awesome documentation I'm not entirely sure where to start.
Any ideas what could cause thiss?

Thanks in advance
