Posted (edited) · flat overhang being printed in an angle

Hey All.   I'm printing two piece with a tab and slot to join the parts. The slots are supposed to be flat overhangs which shows up in solid view but after slicing, they show up as angled in the layer view and is being printed that way.  I can't figure out why Cura would cha nge it.  It prints fine using S3D but I want to use Cura for the Ironing feature.  1.thumb.JPG.0963477bbc9cf16672226da47665e0d4.JPG2.thumb.JPG.0ed2af85c2f4848d10c98e9e368ae5cc.JPG

    I think you might have "make overhang printable" checked.

     

    If not then show us what the part looks like in xray view mode (there's normal mode, slice view and xray).  Does it show the overhang in xray mode?

    You must have checked it accidentally.  That should be off by default - it's pretty experimental and not useful for most prints.
