"Modify settings for overlap" still generates redundant walls

I used a support blocker cube to generate an overlap area for this example. Whenever you use an overlapping shape to influence a main object will always create extra walls wherever these overlaps occur. image.thumb.png.4e7e5552dc047d317857e48fa0d72256.png

    I've tried this on a nightly version of Cura and it does what you would expect it to do. See the attached image.

     

    Could you share your project file? I can have a look to see what is going wrong.

    A "project" is saved with File -> Save..., not with File -> Export...

    Projects are saved as 3mf files, and include the model and settings. gcode files do not include the model, and only a subset of all settings.

    I think I may have found an easily replicatable way to reproduce this. If you rely on wall line counts rather than thickness (in mm) to increment your wall/skins, you need to specifically have those turned to 0 too. This is an easy fix in the cura code as youd just need to add an if in there.
