Print Preview does not match GCode

Recommended Posts

Recently I have been trying to print a carabina (buckle) model that I have found online. The model comes in two pieces so I decided to print one at a time and then swap the filament colour halfway through. When I laid everything out and then added the M600 command through the post-processing bar, it said that it had sliced the model. After I saved the GCode file to my desktop, I decided to check through it just to make sure it had the M600 in the right spot. When doing this I saw that it only went up to 56 layers (instead of the proposed 108 layers). I dragged the GCode back into Cura to see if it could pick up the problem and then it showed me that the models were being printed at the same time. I have tried re-slicing, restarting, and re-installing Cura but nothing has worked. What is going on?

    • "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.
