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 !

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
