Could this be a slicing problem

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
