Very peculiar problem

I intended to print the PizzaOven laying down.


ImportSTL01 shows the orientation as the STL comes in

ImportSTL02 in slicing position (solid view)

ImportSTL03same position (switched to layer view)


Why is the chimney missing i.e. what am I doing wrong? Shouldn't there be supports for the chimney?

I finally ended up printing it upright; 14hrs with 0.1mm layers.


Thanks for your help

When you see all details in solid view, but not in layer view after slicing, the reason is normally, that your lines/walls are too small to slice. So when you have a 0.4 nozzle and in Cura set a 0.4 line width, walls smaller than 0.4 are ignored. You can try to enable the experimental setting "print thin walls" but it is always better to design it with a minimum of 0.41mm to be on the safe side or use a smaller nozzle diameter (0.25) for small prints.

Thank you Sir!


Most likely because of the tapered, outer chimney walls which in a line.
