"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.
