Cura 5.1 Layers

@nallath  I believe you're right... I turned off bridging and the gaps are now gone.  I don't this a good design, because there are times when you would really need true bridging, unless you can control those gaps when bridging is on.


This is with bridging turned off:

    Hello @Newtron.

    You will notice that the Bridge Settings are in the Experimental section, and yes, they are still being tweaked.


    There are certain rules to using the bridge settings.  A couple of them are:

    • If you are printing over support then bridge settings are generally not required.
    • If your feature is a "balcony" cantilevered off the model then you can't use bridging as there is no far-side buttress to adhere to.
    • If the feature has a radius/curve along one edge then you likely cannot use bridging.

    The bridge settings come in handy when you need them,   But they aren't something that is always required or advisable.
