Adaptive layers and pillowing


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Adaptive layers and pillowing

I have a question about how Cura computes the number of top layers once Adaptive Layers is ticked on.


For the record I am using the default options for AL


I love how the AL option can really smooth out prints with a curved surface


However I am noticing some minor pillowing, such as on this part.  I had the top layers set to 4 using a 0.25mm layer resolution (0.8mm nozzle).


Shouldn't the logic increase thinner layers to completely cover the top layer?


Is there an option within AL that I missed that I need to be more attentive to?


I've encountered this before and wanted to post this question.  


Thanks!  (Yes, C-3PO's foot)
