Help: Printer does not fill in top layer

Posted · Help: Printer does not fill in top layer

I have a PrintrBot Simple Metal, and I am using Cura.

The default layer hight is .1mm, however that makes the prints take twice as long as a resoution of .2mm. At .1mm, the "layout" view was fine. The top layer was how it was supposed to be. When I changed the layer height to .2mm, you could see the infill on the top layer. I have read into this problem and I have seen other people say you need to disable all "Fix horrible" setting under Expert Config, and I have but the problem still persists. None of them alone solve the problem, and I am relitively new to this softwear to I do not know what to do. Any help is appreciated, Thanks.

    A picture would be helpful.

    When printing with 0.2mm layer you have to increase the top/bottom thickness.

    Min. 6 layers, better 8. Try 1.2 or 1.6mm top/bottom.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
