Printing top surface over walls?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing top surface over walls?



I often have problem with gaps on the top surface. One of my workaround  is ironing. But ironing is very sensitive and very slow and usually causes other problems.


I like that it is possible to set separately the "Top Surface Line Width" and "Top Surface Skin Pattern". But would it be also possible to print the top surface over shells/walls too?

Like the ironing, which also prints over the walls, dense top surface could do a similar thing.


Please take a look at the below image, there are walls with tiny gaps, these areas are quite small to be touched by the top surface fill. But if the top surface could replace the top inner walls, these gaps would be hidden.
