    it'll be an issue with the slicer settings.
    What slicer are you currently using ?
    simplify 3d has an option to fill in gaps smaller than the nozzle diameter.
    Also see if you can use flashprint:

    set it for creator pro.
    It all depends which motherboard ctc used. Hopefully it's a proper mightyboard (or mightyboard clone). In which case flashprint should work.
