Slicing software missing areas


#1

Hi,

A bit hard to explain, but with some models I've found the slicing software will skip parts where there should be plastic. Was wondering if this is normal. I'm printing at 100 infill.

For example the top part of this model (well the whole way through) is hollow and the top isn't sealed.

Thanks

Looks like under-extrusion.

Even though the slicing software shows there is no material in those spots? 

It seems to only happen with prints that have small wall sections or round circles. Like this spool holder, the flat sections are fine but the finer detail it misses material. Print settings are the same. I've also printer little T-rex with everything being perfect except the section around the eye (very minute).

Hi Beninja,

Please pass me the stl and zcode. I'll check what's going on here.
