Solid View isn't showing texture

Recommended Posts

Posted · Solid View isn't showing texture

I'm not sure if the title really explains what I'm trying to say. I have a part that I've been working on, going back and forth between Cura and SketchUp, using Cura to check where the problems are in the piece and then SketchUp to fix the problems. I generally just save stl files over the previous version when exporting, so I'm not really sure if that's corrupting the file along the way. I've got the file to where it shows up in Cura's layer mode perfectly. Finally no holes or missing layers in the layer view mode, however now when i try to view it in solid view, it just shows an outlined shadow (sometimes grey, sometimes yellow) where the piece should be. I know it doesn't really affect the print or anything, it's just really annoying. Any help?

Thanks,

Jack

Here's another angle

And here's a part that isn't affected for comparison

So it seems to be the actual file of the part and not Cura that is the problem.

Use the Solid Inspector plugin in Sketchup to ensure there are no manifold issues.

Well I've gotten it to where SketchUp's Solid Inspector says there are no issues but the problem still persists in Cura.Untitled5.thumb.png.05ae2c763523e423320c957ce128830f.png[/media]

If someone can tell me how to upload the file, I can share it.

 

I sent you a personal message with my email address in it. I'd be happy to take a look at your model if you like.
