Line width anomaly


Recommended Posts

Posted · Line width anomaly


I set my line width to .3mm with a .4mm nozzle. I created some features at .3mm on my part. Cura will smooth over those details until I make them .35mm in size, then they show up.  Is Cura defaulting to a line width of .35mm even though I have it set to .3mm?

    By default I think your CAD part feature (e.g. a wall) width must be 2X your line width as cura always does a circular pattern when filling in any solids in your model.  The outer most pass is a loop.


    However if you check "print thin lines" in cura it will do down to about 1X your line width although it still makes 2 passes.


    There is a new BETA cura also known is "arachne" which you can download and try and that version is able to do only one pass but it may take a long long time to be released as it has been available for about a year and still not deemed good enough to be the latest official version.  Most people who use the beta arachne version say it works fine.  No problems.
