STL missing holes

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My PCB design software allows for STL export (file attached).

However the 3mm PCB holes are not coming into cura successfully.

When you preview the holes in mac or windows preview the holes are there which is what the PCB software co is telling me.

Please could you take a look and let me know what to tell them is wrong?

Thanks

Andy

There is a problem with your STL file, seems that it is not watertight and/or some other problems. You can check it also in Cura with the x-ray view, there should be no red in the model, yours is full or red.

 

Review your model in your design software, if it is ok, then try an STL repair service, like the netfabb online service. (it's free)

    • "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.
