Bug? Prusa Mk3s+, 0.6 Nozzle, wall thickness automatically 0.8? (Cura 5.1.1)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Bug? Prusa Mk3s+, 0.6 Nozzle, wall thickness automatically 0.8? (Cura 5.1.1)

I've recently bought the E3D Revo, so I'm switching nozzles a lot - and having troubles.


I noticed that even when I tell Cura that I have a 0.6 nozzle, the wall thickness is 0.8 . Line width changes correctly, I've checked. The wall thickness value is not entered manually, and line count is 1.


Shouldn't the wall thickness be 0.6?


[edit] Just checked with a default profile and Cura 5.3.1 - still 0.8 . Either I'm misunderstanding something or my settings are completely borked.

    Wall thickness isn't the nozzle size.
    Wall thickness is something specific to Cura - you can says how thick you want the wall vs how many walls you want (it supports either option)
    So 2 walls or 0.8 = same thing.

    Changing the nozzle size won't auto recalculate that, you will need to change it on your own.
    The slicing engine will still try to complete 0.8 wall thickness with your nozzle however.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
