The “Solid” in the documentation is not enable to print solid model that you requested. Do you mind share what is the wall thickness of your model? You can get better result by changing the layer thickness, as the layer width is related with the layer thickness.
FYI, if the layer thickness is 0.2, layer/line width will be 0.5mm. If the the layer thickness is 0.4, the layer width will be 0.6mm. Each model has at least two walls, so the thinnest wall thickness will be 1mm, when the layer thickness is 0.2mm, and the thinnest wall thickness will be 1.2mm, when the layer thickness is 0.4mm.
So if the walls (=inner + outer) of your model is thinner than 1mm, you can get solid wall whatever layer thickness you select. Or say if the model walls is thinner than the printed layer width of outer wall and inner wall, it will have a solid model. Please see the attached picture explanation.

Also when printing screw bosses, all i get is a cylinder inside a cylinder with a gap in between instead of a solid boss. refer attached photo. This is no good and I cannot test the prototype as it is not strong enough. The documentation I read on this machine states to select "Solid" for functional engineering samples, however this does not work as it cannot print solid.
what settings can I use to avoid this 2-seperate-walls rather than a solid problem.
