Not printing infil

Posted · Not printing infil

Hi all, I have a quick question: I am trying to print 8 rods (5.7mm in size each). One of the rods came out great. I am printing in PETG. I can bend the rod and it never brakes. Basically what I want. GREAT! The other RODs just crush with one finger. I printed the 8 RODs flat on the bed with a brim. I printed 2 more with different filament to test. I see that the 2 rods printed as test Vertically did not get filled in with infill. Do you have any ideas. I can tell because it did not print the top or botom of the rod only the wall you can see straight through it. I was thinking that maybe my RODs are to small for infill to print. Do I need to print these as walls only or something like that. But it confuses me that one of the rods did get infill printed? Also could this be a temp issue as well because shouldn't it still bend not brake even with a thin wall?

        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.
