Recommended Posts

Posted · Odd error. NEED HELP!

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.
