New Layer by Layer! Using Fuzzy Skin on Practical Prints via @ecken #3DPrinting
I first heard about the fuzzy skin feature a few years back when CURA added it to the experimental tab. Since then I’ve been meaning to use it in a project that showcases the texture. Honestly, I’ve kinda forgotten about it until working on this Lemon keypad project. Although it’s easy to check the box, there’s some things to consider when applying this feature to practical prints.
In this tutorial we’ll take a look at using the fuzzy skin feature in CURA. I demo the Fuzzy Skin Outside Only feature and talk about how I optimized the 3D model in order to avoid unwanted geometry. I also quickly take a look at slicing a cauldron and display stand.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
