Hello,

 

When I prepare my 3D model in Cura, the slicer removes some details.  The gray picture is the model, and the blue is the G-code as previewed by Cura.

 

In the 3D model, the round shapes are not solid.  But the G-code has them covered.  Why is that?

 

(For the curious: this is a model of a PDP-10 KA10 processor.  The round shapes are magnetic DECtapes.)

 

Thanks!

I guess it is because your lines in these fine details are too thin. Cura doesn't slice walls thinner than the nozzle size. You can try the experimental feature "Print thin walls".
