I'm experimenting with larger nozzles and large objects. I thought I had left the default wall count at 3 and that's why the print was turning out much sturdier and much heavier than a smaller nozzle, even though it took 1/3 - 1/2 as long to print it.
Well, I have a 1 mm nozzle,
wall thickness set to 2 mm, and
wall line count at 2. I expected that
wall thickness was to be multiplied by
wall line count to arrive at the final wall width. However, I don't think that's the case, the two values seem to be interrelated and redundant. This forum post from a few years ago tries to say as much. I now think that
wall thickness is extrusion width (
line width?) multiplied by
wall line count.
The problem that I saw that made me dig into this, is that the
wall thickness is set to double the line width, leading me to believe that I'm getting 2 walls of double-width walls, which means 4 mm thick walls. I don't think it's doing that, but I may have confused myself in the process. Looking at the line view, I think the walls are 2 mm.
How are these two variables related?
