Cura modifies model


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura modifies model

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.
