Hi!

I just completed this 11 hour print and as I was removing the supports, i found out that the printer has pretty much printed a half of the other leg of the figure.

It seems like there is some infill or something weird happening, that i can't really understand.

The rear side of the both legs are prefect.

    Ok, now that I'm looking at the layers view in Cura, i see that the left leg is not showing up as it should. The whole front side of the leg is missing.

    Also, the ears are separate of the figure it self. Only attached at the corners.

    Hmmh. Useless..

    It's a bad model. Did you create the model? You can repair it with netfabb on the web for free (google it) or if it's your model you can fix it yourself. You can see problem areas with "xray view" in cura (15.4 or older). The problem areas will show up as red.

    or you might just want to try clicking some of the "fix horrible" checkboxes. There are 11 combinations so you might want to set layer height to .4mm while testing which is the correct combination but probably only "A" or "B" is enough for you.

    No i didn't create the thing. Just downloaded it.

    So you mean i can even fix that in Cura or just netfabb?

    I see some people have made it and it seems solid on those.

    I also double checked the file on Slic3r, and it gave me the same crappy leg.

    I have tha latest Cura so, no x-ray view

    Gonna get the netfabb and see what happens

    no - dont' get netfabb. Just upload your model to the netfabb repair website and then download the repaired file.

    Also I don't recommend the latest cura - it's basically a beta. I don't know if it has the "fix horrible" settings anywhere - didn't notice them. Really the older cura can fix stuff like that.

    Yep, there is an extra separate left leg piece of geometry in the model and the ears aren't connected as mentioned, which is obviously confusing the slicer - easy fix as gr5 says with Netfabb. Or if you have 3d software, open the ,stl and you'll be able to select the leg and deleting should work, but do run through Netfabb to confirm.

    I would also post a comment on http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:760426 to let him know there is a problem, with his file - save anyone else wasting an 11 hour print!

    cheers

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
