[ SOLVED ] On cura v15.04.6 the most of the layers wont print!

Recommended Posts

First of all I would print it with the circle down flat on the bed.  There is a rotate feature in cura. Once rotated with circle "down" you can disable support and the part will print much more beautifully and also much faster.

It's hard to tell what the problem is but from looking at the pictures it looks like your part has an outer and an inner wall with nothing in between.  So if you pass an imaginary line along the rotational axis of this part (the tip to the base) you will pass through 4 (not 2!) sets of meshes (surfaces).  First the tip of the part, then - maybe a half millimeter later a second surface.  Then nothing for a short distance - maybe 5mm? And then 2 more meashes.  Is this explanation clear so far?

Anyway the thickness of these walls are much less than 0.8mm (the minimum wall thickness for a .4mm nozzle as it makes two passes.

Did you create this part yourself in CAD?

View the part in "xray mode".  You have your normal mode shown and slice view shown but there is another view mode called xray.  In that mode anything colored red (dark red, light red, bright red) is a problem.  I don't think you have this issue but that's another possibility.

    • 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.
