Cura 3.0.3 filling in holes

Recommended Posts

Hi all-

I update to Cura 3.0.3. I was using the Wanhao edition of Cura previously. Worked fine for me, thought to jump to the newest yesterday. When I read the FAQ, I understood that 3.0.3 would migrate settings if installed side by side to the old version.

Here is screenshot of some gears I am trying to print. 3.0.3 is infilling the bore. This is under both recommended and custom settings.

In 3.0.3 the Mesh Fixes -> "Remove all holes setting is unchecked.

I used the same .stl that I generated from AutoCAD for all 3 gcode generations. I put it into S3D too to check the model.

What am I missing that would infill the bore of the model?

TIA

Thanks Dim3nsioneer, that seemed to fix it. I will look at how I modeled the part with blocks/arrays. I wonder if that caused the issue.

Sometimes I think that AutoCAD exports to like it used to print in the pen plotter days- by order drawn not by position. The travels in my models seem ridiculous.

    • "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.
