Gaps in the layers depending on positioning of the model Cura 2.5

Recommended Posts

Posted · Gaps in the layers depending on positioning of the model Cura 2.5

Sorry to ask this noob question but:

Why does CURA create random gaps in Z-axis of the structure?

What can I do to close the model?

The model was created in Catia and should be OK...

THX for a hint...

Something is wrong with your model in those areas.  Look at your model in xray mode.  If you see any shades of red then thats a problem (either a hole in the wall of your solid or an extra infinitely thin internal wall.

Most cad programs don't make it possible to create non-solids but sketchup is the opposite - they make it tricky to create solids.  I don't know cadia. But even if you don't use sketchup - the photos in this article make it clear what I am talking about:
