the printing shell thickness is not even

Posted · the printing shell thickness is not even

Hi All

I find that the printed model's shell thickness is not always with the same thickness.

Why is that ? Is the Cura slicing issue ? or the Marlin firmware issue ?

Thanks for your reply.

You are going to have to be more specific and include drawings, photos, or diagrams, or screenshots of Cura.

Are you talking about the thin wall issue? Walls thinner than 2mm are complicated to slice but cura can usually handle down to .81mm thick walls.

Your words in your post make me think of 8 different issues and I'm not going to guess which one you are asking about.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
