Top Layers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Top Layers

Hi all,

I have moved from Sli3r to Cura(latest version) and am liking the added flexibility.

One thing that is currently letting my prints down in Cura is the top layer. The layer is neat however I'm struggling getting a smooth finish - in Slic3r I could change the top solid infill to 90% which gives a great surface layer finish.

Please can anyone advice if the is a similar option in Cura ?

Thanks in advance.

Make sure the top/bottom shell is thick enough to have 6 to 10 layers of top shell.

If you layer height is set to 0.1mm then have the top/bottom shell around 0.8mm.
