I am having a problem with thin walls in my model. The errors that are shown are inconsistent because in different places in the model with same dimensions some have errors others not.

Can anyone help me on this?

Thank you

Filipe

Due to the way the Voxels are computed, the tool will have issues catching everything.. that's why it's backed up by a human check before printing.

Your small letters B,P,O,R will have trouble, because the support peice is only 0.15mm - that thin support needs to be thicker in ALL cases, regardless of what the tool is showing.

Hello,

thank you for the reply.

The piece is 3mm thick, so I dont see where is the problem and why you mentioned the support piece is only 0.15mm.

Can you please explain?

Thank you.
