Cura Missing Parts of the 3d Model

Recommended Posts

Hi,

for the last couple of days, I've been struggling with resolving a problem occurring with importing 3d models into Cura. Whenever I import a model it looks fine in the solid view but after slicing and looking at it in layer view whole parts of the model are missing. I've tried fixing the model but to no avail. This has never happened before and I don't know how to fix it. I would appreciate any help with fixing this issue. 

Thank you and cheers,

Matic

I hope it's visible but the whole lower half of the left (sword) hand is missing as well as some fingers and the neck piece.

Hi and welcome to the forums.

 

It looks like your model has a few errors. You can try to repair it with something like netFabb free or Meshlab.

Other than that, it may be that some features on the model are too thin for the nozzle size to be printed correctly. Check out the "print thin walls" option in Cura.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
