Infill issues

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm new to the board and my company owns an Ultimaker 2 Extended. I'm pretty new to 3D printing and I have run into a snag that I can't seem to find an answer on, tbh, I dont even really know what to call it.

I have done a handle design in Sketchup and exported it as an STL. I used Solid Inspector2 to make sure the component is in fact solid yet when I import the STL into Cura, its not filling the handle, and whats worse, its not filling it in the parts that the handle really needs to have strength.

Here are two images that show the issue.

This image shows the empty space Cura is leaving in the print. Anybody know what this issue is called and how to repair it? I have searched the web but nothing seems to cover this issue specifically.

Thanks in advance!

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
