Model shows correctly in Normal view, but not in layer.

Recommended Posts

I have this STL file from a customer that shows up correctly in Normal view, but it doesn't show most of it in layer mode and thus it doesn't print out correctly.

Here's the STL file:

Any help would be appreciated.

Yup layer view shows the base but stops once you get to the section with the holes. The section with the base has infill, the section with the holes does not. I am assuming that the thickness of the section with the holes is too thin. Going under .4mm is asking for trouble. Going under .8mm will give you a part with a very thin wall and little strength, but will work.

    • "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.
