Slic3r base very thin

I'm generating my gcode with sic3r but the base infill is very thin and leaves little gaps between the filaments. How can I increase that base with?

Thank you.

Have a look at Advanced settings. There are modifiers for the various extrusions. Try using a percentage value in excess of'll have to experiment a bit to find the right value for your particular situation.

Is it only the base? I have an issue in slic3r where the bottom layer does not extrude at all. The extruder motor never even turns.It did take me a while to figure it out, since it would extrude a little bit each time it did a retract (on a fast move), resulting in very little amounts of filament being laid down.

I don't know why, but it's not that big of a deal. I usually open the gcode in a text editor and just delete the first layer, and copy/paste the second layer in its place.

what happens if you decrease the nozzle size in setup? i have a 4mm nozzle but settings only behave when i say it is 0.38mm
