Different Slicing from the Original Model


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Different Slicing from the Original Model

Hi, everyone:

I am new to the 3D printing area, today when I loaded my file to my Cura slicer, for some reasons, in one of the orientations, part of the hollow structure would completely disappear in both the slicing drawing and the actual print.

Here are some screenshots in the Cura:

The 35th layer of the print when the object lay flat

The 36th layer of the print when the object lay flat

The middle hollow structure is visible when the object lay on the side

Can someone please tell me what happened with the file? Thank you.

    Hi,

    the red part on the X-ray view tell that you have an error on your 3D model. I am not an expert but i think it can happen because of holes in the mesh, wrong normal ect... You can check if your model is correct until someone with more experience come here.

    Can you show us a picture of the model if possible ?

    ps : you may have already solve your problem... haven't see the date -.-

    If you created your model in Sketchup, you can download the Solid Inspector extension. It will tell you if you have holes in your mesh, stray edges or internal surfaces - any of which could cause this issue.
