I have a Boole that will not print properly


Recommended Posts

Posted · I have a Boole that will not print properly

I have a simple cube (80mmx10mmx80mm)

And I have a Boole that has been cut out of the bottom of the cube. The boole is also a cube 5mm x 5mm and goes in from the bottom of the main cube towards the top 8 MM.

However, Cura seems to only print the depth of this hole(boole) at around 4 MM. It will not allow me to print it any deeper than that.

Any idea why this might be happening?

I can provide detail pictures if needed to explain better if my description is not good enough.

    Did you create this part in sketchup.  If so right click on all surfaces in sketchup that are gray and select "reverse faces" which will make them white and should hopefully fix your issue.

     

    If you didn't already - ALWAYS look at the part in cura layer view before printing it.  If the hole looks wrong in layer view it's going to print wrong also.

     

    If it's not the sketchup thing (or even if it is) then look at it in xray view as well and if you see any red then thats the problem.

     

    If these hints are not enough to help you then show a screen shot of the part in normal view, layer view, and xray view that shows the problem.
