Missing layer 50

Recommended Posts

Hi

Ok guys I've got a weird problem. I ran a print through cure 2.5 and 2.6 beta and printed it out. At a layer height it seemed to change a little so I checked the gcode using a gcode viewer. I took a look and found that it showed layer 50 was missing. I then put a couple of stl files through and found it still missing. I changed layer height and it still was missing layer 50. Can someone please check this out. Not sure if it my settings but I don't think so.

Almost certainly the stl file. Look at it in xray view carefully. There's probably a hole in the stl file at that layer height. If you see any red color in xray view then that's a problem.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
