Cura modifies model

Recommended Posts

Dear all, 

I became pretty frustrated when I tried to slice my bed leveleling test square. it is a 50 by 50 mm modeled in fusion, extruded to my initial layer height (.3 mm), and exported as .STL. When I open the file in Cura (using 3.4.1) it shows normally in the solid view. Then when I slice it and go to layer view it makes it into some rectangle with a kind of staircase layering. also the skirt is off. The video should be pretty clear. Other models I load into cura slice perfectly normal. So if this is a problem with the .STL, does anyone know what it might be? Thanks to anyone taking the time to reply.

    • "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.
