Cura spaces 0.6 nozzle lines too far apart

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura spaces 0.6 nozzle lines too far apart

I'm using Cura 4.13.1 and I only get this issue with a 0.6 nozzle. I frequently do not use a 0.4mm nozzle.


I am using octoprint and an ender 3 with a btt mini e3 board. The prints have a lattice-work look to them even after 6 or so layers you can see through them. I use a 0.5mm nozzle and the prints turn out fine. Haven't had issues with the 0.8mm nozzles either. The problem is worse with certain filaments, not well mitigated by jacking up the flow % to over 200% or dropping the nozzle 50um.

    Use the File/Save Project command and post the 3mf file here.

    When I slice with a .6 everything looks good.  I was using .3 layer height, .6 line width, 100% Initial Layer Line Width, and all flows at 100%.  There are a couple of other settings that affect the E numbers (amount of overlap, wipe distance, etc.) but the ones I adjusted are the main ones.
