Cura slices model incorrectly, unwanted holes

Posted · Cura slices model incorrectly, unwanted holes

I trying to print model of a skull, so there's what's happening:

This is how old Cura 15.02.1 slices it, I like everything except the supports:

This is how latest version of Cura, 15.06.03, sliced it. I like supports and dislike everything else:

Any idea how to overcome this?

    Try some curas in between. The old cura had awful supports, im using 15.02.01 or something and staying away from the new cura as its still beta in my opinion and the interface is too slow for me.

    Nope, Gcode loads in older version with holes too... It seems that slicer uses intersection mode of merging, instead of union, deleting everything that intersects each other in the mesh.

    I'll use old version then, thanks for clarification.

    Could you also report this on github of the cura engine?

    Was this issue ever fixed? I have been having it happen quite frequently

    We have so many things that we work on at any given moment that it's almost impossible for me to keep track of everything we fix.

    The best way to find out is to just test it.

    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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
