Infill is not generated when too thin


Recommended Posts

Posted · Infill is not generated when too thin

Hello everyone !


I was trying some stuff using CuraEngine without the UI, and I tried to replicate the profile I created on the UI.

Everything seems to work quite nicely, excepting one thing : I cannot find why my infill gets generated when the walls are further away from each other than my original profile. Here is a picture of the gcode generated thanks to the UI and the one with CuraEngine. Note that there are visual glitched on the CuraEngine image because the extrusion is set to relative, so do not bother with that.

I spent a long time trying to find out what parameter was causing this difference (infill overlap, minimum infill area, infill line width, etc) but I could not find it. 


Maybe you guys have an idea ? 


Thanks !
