Pillars filling insufficient

Posted (edited) · Pillars filling insufficient

In the attached project file below there are two bodies. In the left body there are four pillars (diameter 8mm) with a 4,2 mm diameter hole (15mm deep).

They are situated in the corners of the larger rectangular shape.


After printing I notice that these pillars are brittle and not fully filled.


How can Cura be made to fully fill these pillars (except for the hole of course)?

    Thanks. I notice my filling density is 20%. The infill line distance was invisible untill I changed the profile setting and made it visible. When I change the filling density from 20% to 60% the filling line distance reduces from 6mm to 2.0mm.

    Is that acceptable?
