Cura slices model incorrectly, unwanted holes

Recommended Posts

In Cura 2.1.2, make sure "Union Overlapping Volumes" under "Mesh Fixes" is checked. The supports should be fine.

The missing supports was a problem with the old Cura.

That the model is broken is not a Cura issue, but Cura has options to _try_ to fix it. You should always check if Cura does what you expect and if not fix your model in an appropriate modelling software.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
