Object is transparent - not able to print


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Object is transparent - not able to print

Hi there,

i have a problem with my 3d object made in Cinema 4d.

In Cinema 4D and also in the "Solid" View mode in Cura i can see the tires from the bicycle.

But in the "layers" view of cura, you can see the tires are transparent and will not be printed.

What could be the trigger for this issue?

Thank you and best regards!

    That triangle is also missing.

    It's probably the setting "fix horrible A". Search for this. Click the gear and then search for "horrible" among the settings that you can make visible. Check all of the "fix horrible" settings so they are visible and then make sure "fix A" is unchecked and see if that helps. If you use sketchup (which apparently you don't) then fix "A" is quite helpful.

    If that doesn't do it view your model in "xray mode". Similar to normal view or slice view there should be a "xray mode". Anything that appears red is a CAD issue (non manifold part) that can cause the issue you are seeing.

    "Fix horrible" has been renamed. Those fixes are now under "Mesh fixes" which you can add into your collection of settings by going to Settings -> Configure settings visibilty. Scroll down to "Mesh fixes" and tick all the boxes for that heading. Then you can experiment with different combos.

    Also try running it through a stl repair service like: https://service.netfabb.com/login.php Or similar services (Microsoft's 3D Builder app has such a feature as well. A surprisingly good app btw).
