Can't explain... Skin layer before walls traces the walls? See Pictures PLEASE!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Can't explain... Skin layer before walls traces the walls? See Pictures PLEASE!

This is my first post, Woah whooo!  


Really hoping someone can help, as I have searched everywhere but I have no idea how to describe what is going on...


I designed this "little snow man tray thing" in sketchup (and yes it is a solid group) but when I bring it into Cura and look at the different layers, you will see that after a couple full skin layers, it starts to outline the upcoming walls in the final layer of skin prior to the walls going up... As I said, I can't explain it but hopefully the pictures can explain it!


Thank you all!
