Cura not slicing model correctly

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura not slicing model correctly

I have taken a picture of text and turned it into a SVG file, extruded it in blender and exported it as an STL. However, no matter how high resolution or large I export the model, it always misses parts of the model. Is there a fix for this?

in layer view:

Hi and welcome

The reason is quite simple here, the text you are trying to print has very thin walls (most probably less than 0.4mm walls). The slicer is simply ignoring these walls.

So several solutions:

Use a smaller nozzle to match your walls (maybe the 0.25mm can work, you can easily try this in Cura, just change the nozzle size there and look at the layer view)

Change the font and use something less thin (or maybe try the one you used in bold?)

Increase the size of your STL to make walls thicker

It may also not be suitable for printing? Have you run it through Meshmixer or Netfabb just to check?

(Apologies if this is wrong. I'm also a new user not yet fully into CAD)
