Slicing problem with Cura 3.6.0

Recommended Posts

Posted · Slicing problem with Cura 3.6.0

There seems to be a problem with Cura 3.6.0 in slicing the attached 3D model.  The model shows fine in solid view but in layer mode just shows up as infill only.

I've used the same stl file with Slic3r and Ideamaker and they both correctly slice the model.  The stl file is attached, as well as screenshots of what Cura is generating, as well as from Slic3r and Ideamaker. Am I doing something wrong or is there some setting in Cura that I've missed?

The bottom face of your model is missing a trtiangle. In other words, there's an unintended hole in the model which throws off Cura; the model is not "watertight".

I would add that the red area appears to show that the normals are flipped.
