Strange flat top surface in cura 2.1.0

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I have an issue with cura. It is maybe just a checkbox parameter somewhere but i can't find it...

So, i'm trying to print some molds, but when cura slice it, the flat surface which is in contact with the other part of the mold is not a full layer (i get a half layer most of the time). There is a gap of 0.2 mm on a large part of the mold.

The mold works but i really want to know why cura is doing that.

Here some pictures :

The object is touching the buildplate everywhere, so i don't think it is a problem of angle. Also with a 1° angle, i may not have those lines (in red on the second pictures)

On the last pictures, this is the problem on a previus mold.

Do you have some idea ?cura parameters, cura bug, or just a bad modelization ?

thanks for reading !

    • "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.
