Filling hollow spaces?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Filling hollow spaces?

Hello there.

I've found something on Thingiverse and wanted to print it. I had to split the body into four parts and now have encountered a little problem in Cura while I examined the pieces.

The bottom of the case pieces is, as soon as I look at the body in layer view, grayed out and won't print either.

The shape shows the bottom and looks like this:


When I switch to layer view, it looks like this:


How can I fill out the spaces with Cura?

I'm using version 3.0.4 on Windows.

    Hello gr5.

    Thank you for your answer, as well as solution. I tried Netfabb, uploaded my STL and got it back with the bottom layers now appearing in Cura as well.

    Thank you for your solution.

        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.
