Printing very small part

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing very small part

Hello,
I am printing a small part. in linux cura 3.4.1 (nozzle 0.25mm), as you can see in the screenshot of cura at top and in the brim (lower left), parts of the part are missing.  Do you have any ideas?

Regards.

This looks to me like coasting - you're not extruding in the gaps but you'll lay down oozing filament.  Try it again with no coasting and see....

Without actually seeing the model and what is missing, it is not possible to diagnose if it is a 'missing' part due to the lakc of Cura ability or model not being correctly made or if setting really need to be tweaked.

Definitely turn off brim for this part.  

 

Also I agree that the issue is probably "coasting" and so it may print just fine.  Or maybe you need to turn off coasting or tweak it a bit.  I have never tried it myself.

Thank you for all your answers!
You're right, when I remove coasting the material deficiencies no longer appear in cura. it's a misleading representation of cura. When I display the displacements (coasting on), these gaps are represented as displacements.
Thank you.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
