MW 2.2 Fill Problem
by mphardy, published
The gallery image shows the fill generated by the new "medium" setting (.2mm) with 100% infill, 2 shells. In this case, each layer of fill between the cut-outs in the beam follow the same exact pattern and do not fully fill the area. In the end, holes clear through solid portions of the beam can be seen.
Using the new "High" profile in MW 18.104.22.168 seems to result in similar failures in this critical area of the print.

SkeinForge doesn't do "2 shells" well if you are going to do a heavy fill. It'll leave a space in places. Do a custom profile and reduce the density setting of your filament slight amount ( like .97 to .95 or .94) That should help get more filament out of the nozzles.
Personally, I really do not like the 22.214.171.124 default slicer (Miracle Grue)
SF seems to have similar problems at .1 when the internal gap between shells gets too narrow... it just refuses to fill leaving holes. I just compared SF and MW 2.2 MG with http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... and found the MG with shells=1 to be a better output. With shells=2 both produce bad output where about a shell's width between double shells is very poorly filled leading to structural issues.
