Top layer missing border?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Top layer missing border?

 

I'm new to Cura so bear with me as I try and describe this problem, hopefully the pictures will help.

 

When the print gets to the point that it is building a top layer it does not put a continuous border around the layer causing the layer ends to drop into the infill voids.

 

It seems to me that it should print a continuous border before starting the layer fill so that the ends of the layer can attach to the border.

 

Does this make sense?

 

Thanks

hi,

it would really be better if an outside line is printed first and then the coverlayer connects with the outside line.

The only possibility to avoid this trouble is, as far as I know, to use more infill .

I agree, do you know of any way to get Cura to do this?
