Hi, after many attempts, my file that I had imported into cura had no inner section and seemed the file was not importing properly. in x-ray mode parts of the model showed up red, I don't know why this is happening, if possible, is there a solution that works around Mac DSCF2209.thumb.JPG.494ab314b46b0f1b5fcccfe3b1b4e660.JPG

    red in this case indicates you probably have 3 walls. Are you sure this is xray mode? It looks more like layer view in which red just means the outer most layer.

    I'm having the same problem on "layer view mode". Just made my first post about this same thing, hope it gets moved over here to the Cura section? Mine shows the first few layers correctly, then after that only shows and prints outer most shell, everything else inside gets ignored? And infill not shown unless at 100% ???

    It could be a GUI bug not showing infill but more likely it's not going to print any infill. Could you show a photo please? There are 100 possible reasons and a photo will eliminate most of them.

    Did you check xray view mode for any red areas?

    I recognise the model. I know it is a commercial model that you specifically buy for 3d printing, but it is quite a horrible model for 3d printing. You can get it to slice as you expect it with these two settings:

    Union overlapping values: unchecked

    Merged meshes overlap: 0

    You can use the "Search" box on the top of the custom settings to search for these settings.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
