Filling bottom layers with Cura 4.8.0


Recommended Posts

Posted · Filling bottom layers with Cura 4.8.0

I am using a Tevo Tarantula printer, printing PLA and using Cura 4.8 for the slicing.

I am currently printing Eclipson Model A and have had great success with the ‘tubular’ structures like the fuselage and wing pieces that are open ended on both top and bottom layers.

My problem is with closed parts, specifically the pieces that have control horns attached.

Using Eclipson G-Codes I have no way of controlling or tweaking the print settings. Understandable as this code if the proprietary ownership.

My preference is to use their Elev1L.stl as I am able to adjust the profile setting at will EXCEPT, I simply cannot get the bottom layers, which correspond to the control horn, to fill in to print solid.

No matter how much I adjust the settings related to the bottom layers, I simply cannot get that part of the struct to fill.

Elev1L.stlCurrent Cura settings:

Layer height .02

Initial layer height 0.3

Line width 0.4

Bottom Thickness 0.8

Bottom Layers 3

Initial bottom layer 3


Please assist if you can.
