I'm just getting started with my first 3D printer and just printing others designs to learn all of the gotcha's. I've run across mention of walls and floors in the print instructions on a few models so far. I found how to automagically add supports in the PrusaSlicer but what are walls and floors and how do I add them? An example from the "UMB - ULTIMATE MODULAR BOX SYSTEM" For the prints, i recommend 30% infill and 3 walls and 4 top/bottom.

I've looked through the manual and done online searches but not found anything.

Thank you,

Dave

Good Evening Dave, 
Is it possible the comments relate to a different slicer? 

In Prusa Slicer I expect
Walls equates to Perimeters, 
Ceilings equates to Top layers and 
Floors equates to Bottom layers... 

Have you found the Prusa Article on Prusa Slicer yet?

Anything is possible, I'm brand new to this. Thanks for the hint and I'll go through the slicer manual. I guess I overlooked a manual that I should have read.

Thank you.

You might pick up some ideas from the manual... 

but keep asking questions, we occasionally find ways to use  prusa slicer, that are not in the manual

regards Joan
