Generating sliced model of stl with internal structure

Recommended Posts

Posted · Generating sliced model of stl with internal structure

Hi,

I am trying to print a downscaled version of large wind turbine blade. The blade is composed of an aerodynamic shell and an internal structure composed of two webs. The stl file in Cura looks like this

The thing is when the model is sliced only the webs show up looking something like this

I would like to print exactly what is seen in the STL file since this is the structure I want to show in the end. I have been trying everything and I can get this to work. It seems like Cura automatically identifies an outer or inner shell and slices only that.

Any ideas?

Thank you very much in advance!

make sure that every wall is at least 0.4 mm thick, the size of the nozzle.
