Infill protruding out of the part


Recommended Posts

Posted · Infill protruding out of the part

Hi Everyone,


I'm using a Creality Ender 5 Pro to print a rectangular part with ABS. 

The print settings I'm using in Cura are: 

Layer Height=0.2mm

Wall Line count=0

Top/Bottom layers =1

Infill Density=100%

Infill pattern =lines

Connect Infill Lines= Enabled

Print Temperature=220 C

Bed Temperature = 105 C

Print Speed=30mm/s


The part looks pretty good after its printed. However, I'm noticing that the infill is protruding out the sample. Please see the markup in the picture attached.

I have noticed if I print with walls, I don't see the problem, though I need to print my samples without walls.

I know I can manually change the gcode too to change the extruder movement but I don't know what to change in the code.


Can someone please help me out? I don't know which setting in Cura can resolve this issue.


Thankyou very much!

    You're changing a lot of settings to values that you shouldn't use.


    Have you tried printing the object without changing settings? At the very least set the wall line count to 2 and top/bottom layers to 5.

    I have tried increasing the wall line count and the problem seems to be resolved.


    However, I don't want to print the walls and was wondering if there's an infill setting in Cura that could help resolve the issue as well.

    You could play with the infill overlap setting. By default it's not on zero to ensure that the walls and the infill stick together well.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        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.
