Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I've been printing with the Anet A8 Reprap Prusa I3 for a couple weeks now. So far so good. until tonight.

Here is a still of the model im printing as shown in Cura-

-notice the large open space circled in red. But wait, during printing somehow a random wall was added-

-notice how now the opening has been covered by a layer witch does not exist in cura. ( the blob in the corner is from the resulting catastrophic failure.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

Try running the .stl through MakePrintable or some other 3D Print Mesh repair site/application.

Those type of issues are usually caused by an invalid Mesh (not a closed Manifold) which confuses Cura, and other slicers, as to what's the 'inside' and 'outside' of an object.

    • 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.
