Hi, im still newish to Cura, I did have another preference but i found it necessary to switch. I have recently started making my own objects in fusion 360. I was creating a box for a board game im working on, it should be solid but when i import and slice i cant seem to get any infill in the walls. is 1.5mm or 2mm too small? Am i missing something important?

TKC Box v3.stl

    I'm not quite sure what you mean. The walls are printed solid, which makes sense. They indeed seem to be ~1.5mm, so if you have a line width of 0.4mm and a wall line count of 3, there is no room for infill.

    If you have different settings, it could be that there are gaps between the walls (especially if you have "Fill Gaps Between Walls" disabled). I can also recommend you to have a look at Cura Arachne, which is a version of Cura with a completely re-worked engine that is much better at printing cases like this.
