I have a complex model that has been downsized significantly. My son is using this model for a tabletop game. I have sliced it with Cura and printed it successfully in the past using a .2mm nozzle with a .1mm layer height but I don’t have that nozzle anymore and my son wants to print this in two additional colors. What I have now is a .35mm nozzle. I can use a layer height of .1mm but I’d be willing to go up to .18mm to shorten the printing time.
The problem is with the round towers around the outside of the main castle. There are “windows” near the top of each tower and the slicer decides these windows are too thin to print so it outputs nothing until it gets to the top of the window and now the roof is printable so it does. Needless to say, the roof fails to print because it has air underneath it.
I think there are some interesting settings in the developer area that might help but I need some guidance. I found a slicer, IceSL, that has a setting “Thicken thin features” whose value is a thickening ratio for thin features with a default of 1.25. I found 1.5 seems to allow the windows to print.
Can the settings in the developer area help me accomplish something similar? If not, is this a feature you might consider adding to Pathio?
At the moment, I’ve got my printer (LulzBot TAZ 6) configured in Pathio. I don’t have it configured in IceSL.
