Slicing creating holes in print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Slicing creating holes in print

I have a model that does not have any gaps in the surfaces, but once I slice it, there are holes created. They occur where two surfaces meet, essentially the model is a human figure under a cloak. So where the cloak rests on the arms a hole is formed rather than closing the surface. Is there a setting I should be changing to avoid it functioning like this? I have to use 15.04 since I have a M3D printer and use the Cura Engine in Octoprint.
Any advice/assistance is appreciated

Please show a screenshot of the model in normal view and also slice view.

Looks like the walls are too thin.

What can I do to fix this? Should I be looking at the Cura settings or is this an issue with the model itself?

Just thicken the areas that are slicing as holes in the model itself. Walls need to be at least 1.5 (really low end) to 2 times the width of the nozzle to be properly recognized.
