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 ?

    • "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.
