3D Print Issues - Layers not as expected

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a 3D model which I have processed in Blender to remove doubles, triangulate, recalculate normals and export to STL. The STL file imports just fine in CURA and in normal view looks perfect, but when I switch to layer view, and indeed actually print it, the print is missing out part of the base.

If you look at the images below you will see what I mean. Look at the crown and how the middle section isn't fully printed. The top part of the image shows the model in normal view and the bottom two show the layer view.

Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on how I can fix this?

    • "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.
