Cura not slicing through top layers of print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura not slicing through top layers of print

I am trying to print the shell of this model only at 4 layers thick, but Cura is not slicing/printing the top levels. the model is not flush/flat at the top. I'm certain that has something to do with it, but why would this prevent the slicing of those raised portions?

    There are several possibilities, but it could be an error in the model itself or the wall thickness is very thin.

    Try to enable "Print thin walls" and if you still have this error, then check your model.

    Yes, that was it! However it looks to be very glitchy/spotty if it were to try and print. Even with the wall thickness increased it still appears glitchy. I remodeled the actual model to give the form an inner wall and outer wall which solved this issue. Print time is doubled but at least I'll have the detail at the top.

     

    Thanks

    You are welcome!

    It is always a good practice to have 2 walls, which gives a much better result.
