Recommended Posts

Posted · CURA cannot slice complex model !

Hello !

When I want to prepair for printing a complex model, then CURA says that there is something wrong and stops.

The same model stl file is ok in netfabb.

Please help.

Does it say "there is something wrong" or does it give you an actual error?

In some models the slicer runs out of memory and will tell you "something went wrong during slicing".

And what can I do to fix this ?

Less complex model. Or changing slicer. It's currently a hard limit of 2GB memory use under windows (Mac and Linux have higher limits) I know it sucks, but currently little I can do about it.

Which slicer shoud I use ?

Can I print the sliced file with CURA ?

Because I have a hotbed for ABS printing, I have to use CURA for printing.

CURA is the only software that can control a hotbed, or am I wrong ?

PrintRun can also control a hotbed. Other slicing options are Slic3r and KISSlicer.
