Cura 14.03 strange behaviour with too thin walls

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to find the right way to print architectural models.

Up too 13.12, Cura was just ignoring the too thin walls (like for example windows in my models, that would be .01mm thick). SO the doors and windows wher automaticaly removed.

In 14.03, those very thin parts are sometime strangelys fill, with some layers filled, and some ignored, resulting in very ugly printings.

from my experience. it is better to export your model without the glass in the windows and doors. it is just extra data that cannot be printed at the scale of an ultimaker print. it is better if you remove all the small tiny elements within a window and just have the outside frame. if you need the inside frame, increase the dimensions so they are printable...

mini mini details and super thin parts are no help to you or the print process... I learned that the hard way !
