"No Skin in Z Gaps" Ambiguous Description


Recommended Posts

Posted · "No Skin in Z Gaps" Ambiguous Description

I was trying to figure out what "No Skin in Z Gaps" does, and came across this page.

However, the page says (Highlight mine):



Small gaps between the layers in the Z-direction of a model can be “fixed” by using this setting. Disabling it will ensure the layers will fuse together by printing infill between the bottom and top of the gap. If you disable this setting, it won’t fill the gap and will simply print the bottom and top as they appear in the model.


I presume one of them should say enable?

    Hi @dshin172,


    Not much response with this question..

    BTW. Welcome in here.


    Good findings,


    I'll think you're right and assume the first one should be "Enable it will ensure the layers.."


    And this error is found here, right?




    For anyone interested, roll down to; "No Skin in Z Gaps".


    Also, -this is a good place to learn about how Cura works with details versus settings.

        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.
