Surface mode issues with missing parts


Recommended Posts

Posted · Surface mode issues with missing parts

Aloha folks,

                 Im having abit of trouble with Surface modes, im loosnig out on details if i have Normal/Both set on, But if i have surface on

it keeps my detail but pretty much screws up the model like not printing Top surfaces leaving big gaps ( seen in pictures ) ive been

experimenting with settings but still alittle new to the whole thing, Basically im trying to get those Details printed out like i have

on the example model i did with surface mode set to surface, those small rails on the model do not show up on a model with Normal

or both turned on and it also feels hollow,i do have print thin walls set all the time. So if anyone could shed some light to help i can provide gcodes or even profile if needed.

Im, just trying to get prints with all those details on, Some pictures below from slicer and actual model.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
