Cura 3.5.1 slicing is strange


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.5.1 slicing is strange

I'm using Cura to slice a square with 2 open sides (it's a lid for a box to hold a small component) and Cura is consistingly slicing it strangely.


It only lays a brim down for half of the shape, then will try to lay down midair filament in the regions without a brim.  Obviously, not good.


Any tips/tricks/suggestions?


Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Thanks for the pictures, that looks like the model is not flat at the bottom. If you lower the model by a small amount, say 0.1mm or so, does it then print as expected?


    Can you attach the model file to this thread, please?
