Cura 3.0.4 Removes Internal Geometry

Recommended Posts

I have a model with internal cavities that I want to keep, but I can't get Cura to print them. Everything looks OK in X-Ray view, but in layer view, and in the resulting print, the internal cavities are missing.

It looks like in older versions of Cura, this was usually a problem with "Fix Horrible" settings, which are now supposed to be under Mesh Fixes, but I've made all the settings visible and they aren't there.

Can anyone tell me how to get to the fix horrible settings, or whatever has replaced it in Cura 3?

I took a look at the file. It is a well built model. Turning off "Union Overlapping Volumes" left the internal voids intact.

 

Thanks, I'll give it a try when my current print is complete.  In looking at the layer view, that's not working for me, but maybe Cura will get it right when it counts.

 

Not sure what could be giving you and issue. This is what you should see. Cura 3.0.4

Ok, I had the cap in the same print volume, and it appears that causes a problem, at least with layer view, so the Union Overlapping Volume setting seems to do the trick once I remove that piece.

Thanks for the assist.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
