What settings should I use in Cura

Hi, what is the recommended infill % and pattern for this? I've been trying Slic3r's default settings, but not having much luck:

  • Infill Density 0.4 (i.e. 40%)
  • Fill pattern: honeycomb
  • Top/Bottom fill pattern: rectilinear

I'm using this thing as the first print to test a self-built 3D printer and I am wondering if this setting is perhaps responsible..does this object need a different infill?

I use 0% infill with 1 shell to get that thin wall for finer calibration. Maybe you can send a photo of your print to me so I can help find out the problem.
