Surface of most of my models not printing - HELP PLEASE

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a huge problem and I dont understand why. In "normal" view.. all my models look just fine.. but when I go to "layers" .. most of all my models show that the print won't close at the top of the surface.

Not the model creator claim that they printed their models just fine.. but Cura shows that the print won't come out with the surface printed... any clue whats up with that?

Your layer height is .15

your top/bottom thickness is .75

your bottom layer height is .26

You need the .26 to be a multiple of .15.

Anyway I just sliced a cube with your exact settings and it worked fine.  The .26 could be the problem but then why does it work for me?  did you slide the slider all the way up?  The layerview isn't perfect - it only shows some of the layers at a time so if you slide up and down you should see some layers appearing and disappering.  Try it again and wait for the layer view to fully load (there is a percentage loaded notification in the bottom center of the scree - wait until that gets to 100%).

Just to clarify - the green and red parts of layerview are always visible but the yellow parts (top/bottom and infill) only display the layer you are currently on with the slider and a few layers below. So it may *look* like it's not doing the top and bottom but it should be.

Although now that I think about it - you have brim on the inside of your parts. I don't. Something is definitely wrong with your models. Please post one or both stl files also.
