Hi! I'm a new user to Cura and ultimaker, but making great progress.

Now i'm about to print a model of a building, but it seems the translation from Archicad to Cura isn't working properly.

This is how my solid model looks when i've saved it from Archicad to an .stl file that I've opened in Cura. The scale is 1:500. (is that too small?)

When I look in layer view, there are tons of glitches in the wall (the green parts sticking out) - mostly where the windows of the building are. Why is this and how can i fix it?

When I look in X-ray view I can't find any issues. I'm not sure why this is happening. When i made smaller models before (this model is actually 4 buildings put togethere), with only two buildings put together, I had no problems...

It would be great if i could get some hints on what to do! Thanks.

    When you are putting the buildings together are you removing the joining walls to make it one solid model?

    Your Xray looks mainly white which means it has internal walls. it should look dark blue.

    what you can try is in the expert settings there is fix horrible with 4 different options. try selecting option B and try different combinations of them all to see if you can fix it. otherwise you will need to make sure your model only has the outer shell with no internal structure.

    It looks like you have "Support: Everywhere" enabled... So isn't the green lines you are seeing, auto-generated support?

    EDIT: According to Daid (google searched Cura colors), green are supposed to be inner walls... So I dunno.

    Ok I'll try to remove all the inner walls, now the two grey masses in the right part of the models are walls.

    Also, thanks for the info about what the green lines are!

    I am wondering whether the model(s) comes from somewhere like (Thingiverse) and is not manifold. If you go to the Netfabb site you can either download their Basic software for free or use their cloud service. It will give you model a healthcheck, I think that is the button with the red cross in the basic software. It may be able to fix it too - it has fixed stuff that I have run through it.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
