Cura filling holes in the model

Recommended Posts

Like many of us, I am a new 3D ethousiast and want to make some custom things to learn.

 

I used Sketchup to create a silly keychain, but cura doesn't like it.

When displaying the object, it shows fine, as it should, but once I try to render it, it fills the entire keychain.

My logo just... disappears.

 

I did make other models without any problems, but here is the skp for who knows what I could have done wrong :)

Thanks,

Hey @gr5 I did, and it should be fine.

Cura even loads the model correctly, X-ray is fine too.

Once I slice it, it just fills the entire thing.

 

I noticed the problem once I loaded it into Octoprint.

Here is what happened;

Loaded it in Cura 3.5.0

Clearly this is loaded in the middle of the print bed.

But once loaded into the printer, this happens;

It loads in the corner, making it unprintable.

Also it filled up everything.

 

I did make models with Sketchup already, but this is very weird, and I don't think Sketchup is to blame here?


Anyhow, thanks for the reply already, hoping to get this resolved 😄
