Print Missing Layer

Recommended Posts

Every time I try a print, it misses the exactly the same layers, all in the same region. It has been sliced with different settings, and different versions of Cura. Has anyone got any ideas for what could be causing the missing layers?

Hi and welcome,


What printer is it (you can add that to your profile).


As it's always on the same height it's most probably hardware related and not software (i mean not slicing issue).


Check the Z-Screw or maybe print a simple model (like a cube) to check if the problem occurs at the same height, analyse what is happening.

Thanks very much! 

I'm using a TronXY X1, right now my profile is saying I can't edit it. 


I've tried lubricating the z screw, which made a slight improvement, but didn't fix the issue. 


It seems possible it's underextrusion from watching the print, but I have no idea why it's so localised, or how to fix it.

Hard to say like that because i don't know the TronXY printer


Check anything that could be blocking extrusion or the Z part, if possible make your z go up and down a few times and check if anything seems to block or skip

    • 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.
