Incorrect slicing

Posted · Incorrect slicing

I downloaded a bracelet from Thingiverse, sliced it with Cura and printed it. Strange things happen in the print, the head prints in parts where it should not.

I Cura, the bracelet looks good.

I inspected the code with Repetier host, and indeed, the things which print wrong are apparently in the gcode. Repetier Host shows exactly what the UM is printing.

See pictures.

How can I avoid this?

    (Cura also has a GCode preview, so you could have seen it there)

    Cura shows those little red lines after slicing, those are actual errors that the slicer sees in the model, could be holes or duplicate faces. Most likely one of those is causing the erroneous infill.

    You could try running the model trough netfabb cloud, or slicing at a slightly different layer thickness (which could be why the original creator of the model never ran into this problem)

        (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.
