Wrong solid layer degree

Thu Jul 09, 2015 11:30 am

I noticed something that is not quite right. The first top solid layer is at the same 45 degree angle as the last infill.
This I suppose shouldn't be like this as the solid layer have a large gap along the infill.
Isn't it supposed that solid layers should follow the same pattern as the infill (45/-45)?

I could be wrong but it looked to me in my first prints on 3.0 that s3d is using some sort of sparce infill before laying down solid layers...I could have been seeing things...but if I set it to 3 layers was doing a semi solid first layer THEN 3 solid layers...maybe this is what you were seeing...or maybe I'm nuts.

i believe the first layer should be bridging. if you switch the colors in the preview to feature type then you'll see what it going on much better.
