Posted · Cura 14.03 strange behaviour with too thin walls

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.

    Could be that the fix-horrible type A (which was default off in 13.12, default on as of 14.01) be causing this.

    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 !

    I agree with you, but to have cura automaticaly ignore them was a great help for not wasting time: I could use the same model for the plans printing and for the 3dprinting.

    But if I want to see the doors and windows printed, then I have no choice than to make them thicker.
