Model is greyed in Cura

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I made a panel of rails in Blender and exported it as a .stl file which I opened into Cura.

!st picture is how it shows in Blender, the rails are all the same width height and lenght: 4mm

2nd picture shows how it imports into cura in the Solid view:

3rd picture shows the Layer view after I hit the prepare button:

You can see it shows the model in Grey colour, although it says the model consists of 7 lines there is no actual model printed.

Perhaps this has something to do with line thickness, and/or wall thickness?

I played and changed a lot of values of the line and wall thickness in the quality and shell properties, but it has no effect, the model remains Grey and cannot be printed.

 

My 3D printer is an Ender 3.

 

Can anyone help me figuring this out?

Thanks in advance!

 

Regards

Martijn.

    • "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.
