FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

-MISSING INTERNAL STRUCTURE WITH PRUSALICER
 

Reason: The parameter "slice gap closing radius" is 0,049 mm by default. In some of our models we use smaller gaps so the software will erese this material. 

Solution: Reduce the value up to 0

-INTERNAL STRUCTURE DOES NOT ATTACH TO THE SKIN
 

Reason1:  Slicer is increasing the nominal gap.

Solution: Make sure that in Cura you are using surface mode: Normal.

Reason2:   Firmware or slicer is using linear advance (K-factor). This setting reduces the flow in the corners to remove the excess of material in those places, but if this value is not properly adjusted and is too high, it will cause an undesired gap. The main problem here is that in most of the cases there are several places where this setting can be applied and in most of the cases the user is not really aware of that because the slicer/printer is applying this by default.

Solution1: Do not use any pressure advance setting at your slicer. The best way to get rid of linear advance effects is to include the command "M900 K0" at the end of the Custom Start G-code box

Solution2: In some printers you can adjust the K-value directly in your printer. Turn the value down up to 0
