Does anyone know why Cura generates this bulge in my file? It's not there in the solid model, only the layer view. It starts around 45 degrees and gets bigger as it goes up.

You have "Make Overhang Printable" checked, which automatically reduces the angle of overhangs to make them more printable. Which of course is not something you want checked when testing overhangs, unless you're testing the feature itself.

Great test for overhangs! Noting this in my blog.... http://my3dprintingadventure.blogspot.com
